At the request of the corresponding author, the JCI is retracting this manuscript. The corresponding author recently notified the JCI that multiple microscopy images in Figure 2B were previously published and were used to represent different samples in another publication by the corresponding author’s group (1). The authors have stated that experimental data produced ad hoc are consistent with those in the original publication; however, the paper is being retracted due to data duplication and misrepresentation in the original publication.
