Retraction Note: Correlation of CD44v6 expression with ovarian cancer progression and recurrence
BMC Cancer volume 20, Article number: 236 (2020)
Retraction Note: BMC Cancer (2013) 13: 182
The authors have retracted this original article  because a number of the figures exhibit irregularities.
Figure 1C appears to be comprised of lanes from multiple gels, with only one loading control. Further, the CD44v6 lanes seem to be rotated 180 degrees.
In Figure 3, panels C and F overlap extensively.
In Figure 5B, panels A and B overlap extensively.
In Figure 5C, panels C and D overlap extensively. Also, panel D appears to be rotated 90 degrees.
As these irregularities undermine the conclusions presented, the Editor no longer has confidence in the article.
All authors agree with this retraction.
