The Original Article was published on 04 August 2010

Expression of Concern to: Virology Journal 2010; 7:181 http://www.virologyj.com/content/7/1/181


The Editor-in-Chief is issuing an editorial expression of concerns for this article [1]. Concerns were raised regarding a number of figures in this article, specifically:


Figure 6C: the blots in lanes 4 and 5 appear to be very similar


Figure 7: the native virion particle panel for pH-7.3 (B) appears to partially overlap with the VLP containing AMCPV S3 panel for pH-7.3 (B)


Figure 7: the VLP containing AmCPV S3 panel for pH-4 (A) appears to partially overlap with the VLP containing AmCPV S3 panel for pH-12 (C)


Author Ananta K Ghosh has stated the original data are no longer available. Readers are urged to use caution when interpreting the results related to the data presented in these figures.


Ananta K Ghosh agrees to this EEoC. The editor was not able to obtain a current email address for Mrinmay Chakrabarti, Suvankar Ghorai, Saravana KK Mani.
