Figure 3c: the bottom left panel appears to partially overlap with the 769-P shNC panel of Figure 7h.
Figure 3d: the top left panel appears to partially overlap with the ACHN shrcireTLK1 panel in Figure 7j
Figure 7h: the ACHN shcireTLK1+CBx4 panel appears to partially overlap with the ACHN shNC panel in Figure 7j.
Additionally concerns were raised regarding the tumor sizes as displayed in Figure 8i. The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer have confidence in the results and conclusions of this article.
