The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised regarding high similarity between the sh-Control Invasion image in Fig. 10C and the si-Control Invasion image in Fig. 5E in the authors' other article ([1], now retracted) published within a similar time frame. Further investigation by the Published has identified that the sh-Control Invasion image in Fig. 10C also appears to overlap with the HCCLM2-miR-16-5p EV image in Fig. S4B.

Additionally, the article appears highly similar to another article from an unrelated group ([2], now retracted).

The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer has confidence in the presented data.

None of the authors have responded to any correspondence from the publisher about this retraction notice.
