The Editor in Chief has retracted this article because of multiple concerns about image overlaps, namely:

  • Rows A1 and B1 of Fig. 2 appear similar;

  • The three last blots in line B4, Fig. 1 and line B4, Fig. 2 appear to be repeating;

  • The first two blots in lines A2 and A3. Fig, 2, appear to be repeating;

  • Rows B1 and B6 in Fig. 3 appear similar.

The authors did not respond to a request for clarification nor to correspondence from the Editor about this retraction.
