Expression of Concern to: Lentivirus mediated silencing of Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 39 inhibits cell proliferation of human hepatocellular carcinoma cells in vitro

Expression of Concern: Biol Res (2015) 48:18 https://doi.org/10.1186/s40659-015-0006-y

Concerns have been raised about this article [1] relating to the appropriateness of the use of the shRNA (5′-GCGGAGGGTTTGAAAGAATATCTCGAGATATTCTTTCAAACCCTCCGCTTTTTT-3′) as a non-targeting control and similarities in text and formatting with other published articles. This is currently under investigation and appropriate editorial action will be taken once the investigation is concluded. The authors agree.
