Retraction Statement

The article

“MicroRNA-142 Inhibits Proliferation and Promotes Apoptosis in Airway Smooth Muscle Cells During Airway Remodeling in Asthmatic Rats via the Inhibition of TGF-β-Dependent EGFR Signaling Pathway”
[Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;47(4):1682-1695, DOI: 10.1159/000490986]

by Jing Wang, Hu-Shan Wang and Zhen-Bo Su

has been retracted by the Editor.

The retraction has been approved by the corresponding author, on behalf and with the approval of all authors, and the following explanation has been submitted:

“I studied the effect of 'mirna-142 targeting TGF-β regulating EGFR pathway on airway remodeling in rats', I only found the targeting relationship of mirna-142 targeting down regulating TGF-β2. However,when I made further study of TGF-β1 and TGF-β3, I found that the results and conclusions consistent with those of TGF-β2 could not be obtained.”
