Wolfort RM, Manriquez R, Stokes KY, Granger DN. Platelet-Derived RANTES Mediates Hypercholesterolemia-Induced Superoxide Production and Endothelial Dysfunction. Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2008 July 17. [Epub ahead of print] PMID: 18635819
The authors wish to retract the above-referenced article due to concerns related to the authenticity and accuracy of the data presented. Since the original data generated for superoxide production and Nox-2 expression by the first author (RMW) could not be found, we are unable to verify the data presented in Figures 1–4 (superoxide production) and the Table (Nox-2 expression). In addition, some of the myography (acetylcholine-induced vasodilation) data sets presented in this manuscript are identical to data sets produced by the first author for other publications. We deeply regret any scientific misconceptions that have resulted from the publication of this manuscript.
