The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article [1] because two of the authors, Chin-Chu Chen and Li-Ya Lee, did not fully declare their association with Grape King Bio, which produces extracts of Hericium erinaceum (Lion’s mane mushroom). This undeclared competing interest would have affected interpretations of the work and recommendations from peer reviewers. In addition to this, Western blot rows Fas (33 kDa) and IP:TRAF2 WB: IRE1α (120 kDa) in Fig. 6 appear to duplicate each other.

Chien-Chang Lu agrees to this retraction. Hsing Chun Kuo, Meng Chiao Hsieh, Li-Ya Lee and Chin-Chu Chen do not agree to this retraction. Chien-Heng Shen, Shui-Yi Tung, Ko-Chao Lee, Chih-Chuan Teng, Wen-Shih Huang, Te-Chuan Chen and Kam-Fai Lee have not responded to any correspondence from the publisher about this retraction.
