Retraction Note to: Exercise-induced mitochondrial p53 repairs mtDNA mutations in mutator mice
Skeletal Muscle volume 11, Article number: 8 (2021)
Retraction note to: Skeletal Muscle (2016) 6:7
The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. Following concerns raised by the corresponding author, an investigation by McMaster University confirmed concerns with Figs. 3 and 4 of this article, specifically:
Figure 3b: the VDAC band appears to be identical with the Actin band of Fig. 3b of the original article
Figure 4d overlaps with Fig. 4b of the original article
The Editors therefore no longer have confidence in the reliability of the data reported in the article.
