Retracted: Interaction of TMPyP4, TMPyP3, and TMPyP2 with Intramolecular G-Quadruplex Formed by Promoter Region of Bcl2 and KRAS NHPPE

This article has been retracted upon the authors’ request, as they have incorporated the studies of two oncogene promoter regions which form G-quadruplex complex (i.e., Bcl2 and KRAS), but the DNA considered for the studies was not from these regions. The DNA samples got mixed up, and they are from other regions of oncogene promoter. The complete ESI-MS (mass data) and the ITC (microcalorimetry data) were wrong. Since the mistake occurred at the fundamental level (i.e., at the DNA itself), the whole experiment gave wrong data. Additionally, the article was submitted for publication by the author Narayana Nagesh without the knowledge and approval of the other author Arumugam Ganesh Kumar [1].
