This article has been retracted on request of the corresponding author. The authors have identified errors affecting several figure panels in which original data were processed inappropriately such that the panels in Figure 3: “Cell cycle analysis of BeWo cells by flow cytometry. BeWo cells were cultured with ErPC (4 × 10 − 5 M) for 72 h, harvested, and stained with propidium iodide. Control cells were treated with vehicle alone. Cell cycle analysis was performed by flow cytometry (see “Materials and methods”). The results of a representative study are shown; two additional experiments yielded similar results” do not accurately report the original data. The other authors were not involved in making these figures. The corresponding author, Dr. Takai, sincerely apologizes to the coauthors and the scientific community for any inconvenience that this might cause.
