The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article. Concerns were raised regarding a number of figures, specifically:
Figure 1b: the panel for MHCC97H appears to overlap with the + panel for AD-GFP in Figure 5f.
Figure 1c: the panel for HCSLCs appears to overlap with the + panel for Ad-FoxM1 in Figure 5g.
Figure 2b: the panel for Ad-GFP appears to be identical with the right hand panel of Figure 6b.
Figure 3I of S1: the panels for CD133/20 and CD133/10 appears to be identical with the panels for /- and -/ for IL-8 in Figure 9D in 
The authors were unable to provide uncropped original image for this article. Therefore, the Editor no longer has confidence in the integrity of the data.
