The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article. Concerns have been raised regarding a number of figures, specifically:

  • Figure 9A: the panels for 0 h/siRNA-LHX2 and 0 h/miR-506 inhibitor + siRNA-LHX2 appear to partially overlap

  • Figure 9B: the panels for 0 h/Blank and 0 h/NC appear to partially overlap

  • Figure 9B: the panels for 0 h/miR-506 mimic and 0 h/miR-506 inhibitor appear to be identical

Additionally, the background of the western blots in Figures 2B, 4A, 5B, 5D, 5H and 5 J appear to look unexpectedly clean. Author Zhang-Suo Liu has also stated that he was unaware of the submission and publication of this article. The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer has confidence in the reliability of the data reported in the article.

The authors have not responded to correspondence regarding this retraction notice.
