Journal of Translational Medicine volume 18, Article number: 89 (2020)

The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article  because Figure 3a overlaps with Figure 2 in . An investigation by Zhengzhou University has confirmed this. The data reported in this article are therefore unreliable. There is also considerable text overlap with a previously published article . Guoqiang Zhao does not agree with this retraction. The other authors have not responded to correspondence from the editor about this retraction.
