The first author Lishan Wang has informed the PLOS ONE staff editors that he handled the preparation and submission of the manuscript to the journal without the knowledge of the listed co-authors and requested the retraction of the article.

Upon review of the submission history for the manuscript, the PLOS ONE editors found indications that the peer review process was compromised by the submission of reviews through fabricated reviewer accounts. An institutional investigation conducted by the Administration Office of Bio-X Institutes at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, supported the concerns about the integrity of the review process and indicated that Lishan Wang handled the preparation and submission of the manuscript without the knowledge of those listed as co-authors and is solely responsible for the article. The corresponding author designation as stated in the published article is incorrect.

In light of the above concerns, the PLOS ONE Editors retract this publication.
