The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of OncoTargets and Therapy wish to retract the published article.

We were notified of the alleged duplication of western blot bands between Figure 6B Cyclin A2 and 6D Cyclin A2 in the published paper.

The authors provided an explanation for the duplication but were unable to provide satisfactory raw data for the western blots shown in the article. The editor determined the findings of the study could no longer be supported and requested for the article to be retracted.

The authors wish to apologise for this error.

Our decision-making was informed by our policy on publishing ethics and integrity and the COPE guidelines on retraction.

The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be digitally watermarked on each page as “Retracted”.

This retraction relates to this paper
