Following the publication of the above article, an interested reader drew to the authors' attention that Figs. 1C and 2 in the paper appeared to contain instances of duplicated data. The authors were able to consult their original data files, and realized that these figures had indeed been assembled incorrectly. Moreover, they identified further errors with a number of the other figures in their published formats (specifically, Figs. 3, 4, 6 and 7), and requested that a corrigendum be published to take account of all the errors that were made during the compilation of these figures.
The Editor of International Journal of Molecular Medicine has considered the authors' request to publish a corrigendum, but has declined this request on account of the large number of errors that have been identified, and subsequently determined that this article should be retracted from the Journal on the basis of an overall lack of confidence in the presented data. Upon receiving this decision from the Editor, the authors were in agreement that the article should be retracted. The Editor apologizes to the readership of the Journal for any inconvenience caused.
