Retraction Note: Nuclear factor of activated T cells 5 maintained by Hotair suppression of miR-568 upregulates S100 calcium binding protein A4 to promote breast cancer metastasis
The authors are retracting this article  after an investigation by the Ethics Committee of the Fourth Military Medical University (Xi’an, Shaanxi, China) of the following concerns that had been raised with respect to two of the figures:
Figure 1C, upper panel: areas of the image labelled as “Mock” and of that shown as “Scramble” are duplicated.
Figure 1D: the image labelled as “Scramble, 24 h” and that shown as “siNFAT5, 48 h” are duplicated.
Figure 3A: areas of the image labelled as “Invaded, siCtrl” and that shown as “Before Scraping, siS100A4” are duplicated.
All authors agree with this retraction.
