Retraction Note to: Differential regulation of wild-type and mutant alpha-synuclein binding to synaptic membranes by cytosolic factors

The Original Article was published on 22 September 2008

Retraction to: BMC Neurosci (2008) 9:92 https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2202-9-92

The Editor has retracted this article. Concerns have been raised with a number of figures, specifically:

  • Figure 1C: The right three blots of the upper left hand band appear to be identical to the right three blots of the upper right hand band.

  • Figure 5D: the Synaptophysin panels for both 1 minute-cross linking and 3 minute cross-linking appear to be identical.

  • Figure 5D: the a-synuclein panels appear to look very similar.

The Editor therefore no longer has confidence in the reliability of the data reported in the article.

Sabine Wislet-Gendebien does not agree to this retraction. Naomi P Visanji, Shawn N Whitehead, Diana Marsilio, Weimin Hou, Daniel Figeys, Paul E Fraser, Steffany AL Bennett and Anurag Tandon agree to this retraction.
