Retraction

This article [1] was submitted to Molecular Cancer following the acceptance of an article in Oncology Reports [2], published in September 2009. The two articles were produced from the same data and as a result of miscommunication between authors contained extensive overlap. As such the authors would like to retract the Molecular Cancer article. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused to the editorial staff and readers.
