Retraction to: Human Genomics (2019) 13:50 https://doi.org/10.1186/s40246-019-0237-z
The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article because Figs. 2 and 5 appear to contain overlapping panels:
In Fig. 2D, the panels HTR8 si-NC and HTR8 pcDNA3.1 appear to have a considerable region of overlap
In Fig. 5C, the panels HRT8 si-TUG1 + miR-29b mimic and HTR8 si-TUG1 + miR-29b inhibitor appear to have a considerable region of overlap
The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer has confidence in the results and conclusions presented.
None of the authors have responded to correspondence from the editor or publisher regarding this retraction.
