The Editorial Board has recently obtained information regarding duplicate use of histology images in the 2012 article reporting ENT1 regulation of postischemic blood flow during acute kidney injury by Grenz et al. Our evaluation suggests that Figure 5H (WT –I) is duplicated in Figure 7I (–I –DIP); Figure 5H (Ent1–/– –I) is duplicated in Figure 7D (+I +DIP) and again in Figure 8I (–I –DIP) and again in Supplemental Figure 8G (WT –I); Figure 7I (–I +DIP) is duplicated in Figure 7N (–I +DIP); and Figure 9D (–I –DIP) is duplicated in Figure 9I (–I +DIP). Because the authors have used the same images to represent different experiments, different treatment protocols, and mice of different genotypes, the Editorial Board is pursuing further investigation of this matter. We will inform our readers of the outcome when the investigation is complete.
