It is now clear that the photomicrographs in Figure 2 are duplicates of the same image and that Figures 4 and 5 have been ‘copied’ from a publication “Lupeol triterpene exhibits potent antitumor effects in A427 human lung carcinoma cells via mitochondrial mediated apoptosis, ROS generation, loss of mitochondrial membrane potential and downregulation of m-TOR/PI3Ksol;AKT signalling pathway” by Wei He, Xiang Li, Shuyue Xia, PMID: 30003730.
Because the manuscript contains non-credible results and has also breached copyright, this journal is retracting the above publication.
