After an investigation by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the research integrity officer of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital released a finding recommending the retraction of the Research Article “The transcription factor FOXF1 promotes prostate cancer by stimulating the mitogen-activated protein kinase ERK5” by L. Fulford, D. Milewski, V. Ustiyan, N. Ravishankar, Y. Cai, T. Le, S. Masineni, S. Kasper, B. Aronow, V. V. Kalinichenko, T. V. Kalin, published in Science Signaling on 10 May 2016 (1). Science Signaling ran an Editorial Expression of Concern regarding this Research Article on 18 July 2017 (2). Correspondence from the research integrity officer, dated 21 March 2018, stated that the investigation found that it was more likely than not that data were falsified in Fig. 2C and in figs. S3B and S4E. It was further stated that Cincinnati Children’s Hospital supported the authors’ request for the retraction of the Research Article. Science Signaling has contacted the authors of the Research Article and confirmed that they all concur with the retraction. In light of the investigation and request from the authors to retract the paper, Science Signaling is retracting the paper in full.
