Wayne Alexander (Novel role of gp91phox-containing NAD(P)H oxidase in vascular endothelial growth factor–induced signaling and angiogenesis. Circ Res. 2002;91:1160–1167; DOI: 10.1161/01.RES.0000046227.65158.F8), after an investigation by an Emory University Investigation Committee, the Committee found evidence of manipulation of digital images used in the article regarding Figure 3B that cause this to be incorrect representation of the data. The Committee was unable to attribute responsibility for the image manipulation to any specific individual.
The editors, therefore, hereby retract the paper.
