This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief. Multiple figures in this article appear to be falsified/fabricated. Figure 2A and C. The representative dot plots from the EGCG (15ug/ml)+CDDP (10ug/ml) and TF (15ug/ml) groups appear to be duplicated. Figures 3, 4 and 6. Multiple Western blot bands appear to be rotated and reused throughout Figure 3 (A and B); 4 (A and B) and 6 (A, B, C). In particular, the Cytochrome-c blot in Figure 3B is duplicated and flipped in Figure 6B as p-NFKB. The p53 blot in Figure 3B is duplicated in Figure 6C as p-NFKB. The B-actin blot in Figure 3B is shown as an unmarked control lane (flipped in Figure 6B. The p53 band in Figure 3C is very similar to the Caspase 9 blot in Figure 4B and is cropped and duplicated in Figure 6A as p-NFKB by cisplatin in SiHa cells. The Caspase 3 blot in Figure 4A is rotated and flipped and appears in Figure 6B as p-IKBa.
