Retraction Note: Obesity-induced adipokine imbalance impairs mouse pulmonary vascular endothelial function and primes the lung for injury
The Authors have retracted this Article. Afer publication of this Article, concerns have been raised about irregularities in the western blot data. In particular, the following bands appear to be duplicated: – Fig. 1e HFD/p-Src lane 1 and 3; – Fig. 4c NCD/Ve-cadherin lane 1 and 3 – Fig. 5e HFD+APN/ICAM-1 lane 1 and 2 – Fig. 5f HFD/beta-catenin lane 2 and HFD+APN/beta-catenin lane 1 – Fig. S1d HFD/beta-catenin all lanes – Fig. S4c NCD/beta-catenin lane 1 and 3. Additionally, the beta-catenin subpanel in Fig. 5f was subsequently reused in another study  and described as showing GRP87. Te Authors were unable to provide the original high resolution scanned images for these blots. Terefore, the validity of the presented results cannot be confrmed.
