The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised about the images presented in Figs. 2–8. Specifically:
Repeated motifs are present in colony formation images in Figs. 2a and 3a;
Repeated scatter patterns of data points appear in Figs. 4b and 5b;
Cell images in various panels of Figs. 6a and 7a partially overlap;
Tumor images appear to be presented on an artificial background in Figs. 8a and 8c.
The corresponding author has stated the original data is no longer available. The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer has confidence in the presented data.
All authors agree to this retraction.
Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.
