Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research volume 42, Article number: 32 (2023)
Retraction Note: J Exp Clin Cancer Res 39, 186 (2020)
The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article at the authors' request. After publication, concerns were raised regarding the published images. Specifically:
Fig. 4C appears to contain image overlap between different treatment groups and cell lines.
Figs. 6G and 7G appear to contain image overlap between different treatment groups and cell lines.
The authors have stated that the microscopy images in Fig. 4F were provided by a third party.
Due to the number of concerns with the images, the Editor-in-Chief and the authors no longer have confidence in the presented data.
All authors agree to this retraction.
