Retraction Note to: Differential regulation of wild-type and mutant alpha-synuclein binding to synaptic membranes by cytosolic factors
BMC Neuroscience volume 22, Article number: 40 (2021)
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.
