Concerns have been raised about this article  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.
