Retraction to: Oncogene (2008) 27, 6571–6580; doi:10.1038/onc.2008.249 and associated corrigendum Oncogene (2016) 35, 6446; doi:10.1038/onc.2016.210

The Editors and Publisher have agreed to retract the above paper and associated corrigendum following a request from the authors.

The G3PDH blot in Figure 6A in the corrigendum shows similarity to the Bid blot in supplementary Figure 2 of the original paper. The authors could not provide the original data for the supplementary figure or provide an explanation for this similarity identified, and therefore requested that the original paper and corrigendum be retracted.
