Sir,

We would like to add a note that in our recent publication on "A search for mosquito larvicidal compounds by blocking the sterol carrying protein, AeSCP-2, through computational screening and docking strategies" [1] and reported the results based on in silico docking experiments that a-mangostin as a best inhibitor; however, Larson et al. 2010 [2] performed assay-based screening and assessed the toxicity and dosage levels of -mangostin. Unfortunately, we missed citing this article which would be important to explain our results and this is not intentional. We greatly acknowledge Dr. Q. Lan for intimating us the same.
