Retraction Note: J Exp Clin Cancer Res 38, 475 (2019)
The Editor in Chief has retracted this article after concerns were raised regarding a number of potential image overlap issues. Specifically:
It appears there are several potential image overlaps between Figs. 2E and 4E of this article, despite the authors providing a correction to Fig. 2 .
Further potential image overlap has been alleged between Figs. 1D and 6E of  by some of the same authors.
Potential image overlap between 4B and 4B of  by some of the same authors.
The authors were unable to provide raw images and evidence of ethical approval. Therefore, the Editor has lost confidence in the data presented here. All authors agree to this retraction.
