Cancer Cell International volume 21, Article number: 484 (2021)

The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. Concerns were raised regarding Figure 2, specifically:
Figure 2c: part of the top right panel appears to be partly covered by a white circle.
Figure 2d: the si-NC panels appear to partially overlap.
Figure 2e: the si-XIST HT29 panel appear to partially overlap with the siXIST HT29 panel and the si-XIST SW480 panel of Figure 2d.
The Editors-in-Chief therefore no longer have confidence in the reliability of the data reported in the article.
Xian-Li He has stated on behalf of all authors that the authors agree with this retraction.
Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.
