This article has been retracted: In Figure 8, panel B, three of the tumor images are duplicates of images published in three other journals [1–3]. In addition, multiple internal image duplications occurred in Figure 4. The authors are unable to recover the original data and cannot verify the accuracy of their conclusions. As a result, all authors have agreed to the retraction of this paper from Oncotarget.
