Retraction Note to: Decreased expression of the long noncoding RNA LINC00261 indicate poor prognosis in gastric cancer and suppress gastric cancer metastasis by affecting the epithelial–mesenchymal transition
Journal of Hematology & Oncology volume 11, Article number: 2 (2018)
The authors have retracted this article  because of significant overlap of text and some images with a previously published article by Xu et al. . A formal investigation by the 1st Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University has found that some panels in Fig. 6b  are identical with panels in Fig. 5a  and some images of mice lungs in Fig. 6c  are identical with images in Fig. 3g . The data reported in this article are therefore unreliable. All authors agree to this retraction.
