An incorrect attribution of the first study regarding the effect of exercise in DM1 mouse models needs to be revised.

Main text

In this article, we cited Manta et al. 2019 [1] as the first study to publish about the effects of exercise in DM1 mouse models This was an oversight considering that Ravel-Chapuis et al. 2018 [2] have reported in the last part of their “Results” section, presentation of the effects of wheel running on skeletal muscles of their DM1 mouse model. This article was published in October 2018 while the article of Manta et al. 2019 [1] was published in January 2019.
