Erratum to: Positive selection neighboring functionally essential sites and disease-implicated regions of mammalian reproductive proteins
BMC Evolutionary Biology volume 17, Article number: 170 (2017)
After publication of the original article  the authors found that all instances of the protein SP56 should have been referred to as SELENBP1 in the article.
The authors wish to clarify that while SP56 is a known synonym for SELENBP1, the gene referred to throughout the manuscript as SP56 is better referred to as SELENBP1 and not the gene for sperm binding protein number 56 (SP56).
