The authors and the journal hereby retract this article “The exocyst in Candida albicans polarized secretion and filamentation” published in Volume 62, Issue 2, pages 343–346, DOI 10.1007/s00294-015-0553-3. The authors have stated that the manuscript contains fictitious data. Two articles also published by the authors (Chavez-Dozal et al. 2015a, b), which mainly formed the basis for this review article, have meanwhile been retracted, because they contained several images with fabricated or falsified data.
