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.
