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.
