The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article at the corresponding author's request. After publication, concerns were raised regarding image overlap between the figures in this article and previous publications from different groups, specifically:

  • Fig. 2d appears to overlap with Fig. 8b in [1]

  • Fig. 3e appears to overlap with Fig. 4c in [2]

Additionally, in Fig. S1, the mean tumour weights in the TPT1-AS1 and sh-Vector groups appear to exceed the recommended tumour weight limit of 10% of initial bodyweight. No statement on Ethics approval for the use of animals is present in the article.

The authors have been unable to retrieve the original data or ethics documents to address these concerns.

Guanqun Huang, Nianzhang Zhao, Ting Zhang, Mengni Jiang, Yueming He and Xinke Zhou agree to this retraction. Hui Jiang and Xianhan Jiang have not responded to any correspondence from the publisher about this retraction.
