This article has been retracted: Multiple images in Figure 3C, which illustrates that LincRNA P7 inhibited the proliferation of HCC cells SMMC7721 and Huh7 with colony-forming assay, were found to be fraudulent duplications of images from a previously published Oncotarget paper [1] Figure 2D, which represents results of colony formation in different HCC cells Huh-6, BEL-7402 and SMMC-7721 transfected with unrelated HULC siRNA. As a result, all authors have agreed to the retraction of this paper from Oncotarget.
