Concerns were raised on Pubpeer about the following figure in the article: · Figure 2 A2 hematoxylin and eosin panel showing crown pulp appears to contain duplicate features within the image. Upon reviewing the remaining figures, concerns were raised regarding the Western Blot image in figure 4: · Potential splicing between lanes 1 and 2 of the B-actin immunoblot · Potential splicing around the band in lane 2 and 3 of the P2X7 receptor immunoblot The authors provided the uncropped raw images for Figure 2 A2 and for theWestern Blots in figure 4, however, concerns remain regarding splicing of the Western Blots as well as the validity of the original images provided. Due to concerns about image integrity that call into question the validity of the findings, the Editors of Molecular Pain retract the article. The authors did not respond or could not be reached
