I am quite new to Latex. Using citations works well until I add a specific one. After adding this citation (with: \autocite{Yamashita:2000a} this error occurs:

Abstract = {We isolated mouse cDNA encoding a novel FGF (251 amino acids). As this is the 23rd documented FGF, we termed it FGF-23. FGF-23 has a hydrophobic amino terminus ( approximately 24 amino acids), which is a typical signal sequence. As expected, recombinant mouse FGF-23 was efficiently secreted by High Five insect cell-infected recombinant baculovirus containing the cDNA, indicating that FGF-23 is a secreted protein. We also isolated human cDNA encoding FGF-23 (251 amino acids), which is highly identical ( approximately 72% amino acid identity) to mouse FGF-23. Of human FGF family members, FGF-23 is most similar to FGF-21 and FGF-19 ( approximately 24% and approximately 22% amino acid identities, respectively). Human FGF-23 gene was localized on the chromosome 12p13 and found to be tandem linked (within 5.5 kb) to human FGF-6 gene. The expression of FGF-23 mRNA in mouse adult tissues was examined by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. FGF-23 mRNA was mainly expressed in the brain and thymus at low levels. The localization of FGF-23 mRNA in the brain was examined by in situ hybridization. FGF-23 mRNA in the brain was found to be preferentially expressed in the ventrolateral thalamic nucleus. Therefore, FGF-23 is expected a unique FGF that plays roles in the function of the ventrolateral thalamic nucleus.},

The first citation (\autocite{Stubbs:2007aa}) works without any problems. As soon as I add the second the previous error occurs.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Sep 21 '14 at 16:06
  • Have you tried removing the abstract field? – U.Martinez-Corral Sep 21 '14 at 16:28
  • There is a % in the abstract field, try replacing that with \%. Or removing the field altogether, as @U.Martinez-Corral suggests. – Torbjørn T. Sep 21 '14 at 16:29

As suggested in the comments, you should not use % in the abstract field. Either escape those replacing them with \%:

    % is not a comment character in .bib files; if you want to “comment out“ a field, change its name to an undefined one, like COMMENTAbstract = {...} – egreg Sep 21 '14 at 16:37
  • I suppose using %abstract also worked just because it is not a defined field. Anyway, I've edited to make it clear. – U.Martinez-Corral Sep 21 '14 at 16:41
