Retraction Note: IspH inhibitors kill Gram-negative bacteria and mobilize immune clearance

The Original Article was published on 23 December 2020

Correction to: Nature Published online 23 December 2020

The authors wish to retract this Article owing to recently uncovered discrepancies between the published Source Data underlying panels in Extended Data Figs. 4, 6 and 7 and the data that were obtained. They have discovered multiple inconsistencies in the data points reported in the published Source Data files. In addition, original source datasets in support of individual panels in Figs. 1, 2 and 4 and Extended Data Figs. 5 and 10 are currently unaccounted for. Together, these issues decrease confidence in the integrity of the experimental findings reported. As such, the authors believe that the most appropriate course of action at this point is to retract this Article in its entirety. The authors sincerely apologize to the scientific community for any confusion and any unintended harm derived from the publication of this paper. All authors agree with the Retraction.
