The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article [1]. Concerns were raised with Figures 2 and 3, specifically:

  • Figure 2E: the panels for Group-2 and Group-3 appear to partially overlap.

  • Figure 2E: the panels for nab-P and AP appear to partially overlap.

  • Figure 3E: the panels for Bax/Group-1 and Bax/Group-3 appear to partially overlap.

  • Figure 3E: the panels for Bax/Group-2 and bcl-2/Control group appear to partially overlap.

  • Figure 3E: the panel for CD31/Group-1 appears to partially overlap with the panels for CD31/Group-3 and MMP-2/Group-2.

  • Figure 3E: the panel for CD31/Group-3 appears to partially overlap with the panels for MMP-2/Group-1 and MMP-2/Group-2.

  • Figure 3E: the panel for CD31/Group-3 appears to partially overlap with the panel for MMP-2/Group-1.

  • Figure 3E the panels for MMP-2/Group-1 and MMP-2/Group-2 appear to partially overlap.

The Editors-in-Chief have therefore concluded that the data reported in this article are unreliable. The authors have not responded to any correspondence regarding this retraction
