The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised regarding potential image overlap within the published figures. Specifically:
In Fig. 4A, the HBP images for the Naive and 14 d groups appear to contain an overlapping area.
In Fig. 5B, there appears to be overlap between the Sham-14 d and HBP-7 d, as well as NMP-1 d and BP-14 d images.
In Fig. 9A, the western blot images representing MYD88-1 d and p-IκBα-7 d, as well as p-IκBα-Naive and p-p65-7 d appear highly similar.
The authors have stated that these errors occurred due to mishandling of the data. The Editors-in-Chief therefore no longer have confidence in the presented data.
All authors agree to this retraction.
Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.
