Notice of Retraction
For the paper by Masuko Ushio-Fukai, Kathy K. Griendling, Peter L. Becker, Lula Hilenski, Sean Halleran, and R. Wayne Alexander (Epidermal growth factor receptor transactivation by angiotensin II requires reactive oxygen species in vascular smooth muscle cells. Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2001;21:489–495; DOI: 10.1161/01.ATV.21.4.489), after an investigation by an Emory University Investigation Committee, the Committee found evidence of manipulation of digital images used in Figure 2A, 2B, 2C; Figure 4A; and Figure 6B that cause these to be incorrect representations of the data. The Committee was unable to attribute responsibility for the image manipulation to any specific individual.
The editors, therefore, hereby retract the paper.
