The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article at the corresponding author's request. After publication, the authors became aware that data from other projects were included in the figures, resulting in image overlap between this article and previous publications from other authors. Specifically:

  • Fig. 3a appears to overlap with Fig. 4a in [1];

  • Fig. 7g Cyclin D1 lanes 3 and 4 appear highly similar to Fig. 9d E-cadherin lanes 2 and 3 in [2].

Additionally, parts of images in Figs. 2d, 3a, 7g and 8f have subsequently been used in [3,4,5,6,7].

The authors have therefore lost confidence in the data presented in this article.

Author Kangsheng Tu has stated on behalf of all co-authors that they agree to this retraction.
