The Editor-in-Chief is issuing an editorial expression of concerns for this article . 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.
