The oral cancer cell line OC3-I5 with a highly invasive ability was selected and derived from an established OSCC line OC3. In this study, we demonstrated that matrix metalloproteinases protein MMP-13 was up-regulated in OC3-I5 than in OC3 cells. We also observed that expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) markers including Twist, p-Src,… (More)
Authors and Oncotarget editors agree to retract the article " MMP-13 is Involved in Oral Cancer Cell Metastasis " after concerns regarding data duplication in multiple figures were confirmed through an internal investigation. The authors of this manuscript extend their sincere apologies to the scientific community.
