    1. This is fascinating if true
      280 papers were based on this possibly flawed finding
      That could be a massive retraction extravaganza.

      Absence of Runx3 expression in normal gastrointestinal epithelium calls into question its tumour suppressor function.
      Levanon D, Bernstein Y, Negreanu V, Bone KR, Pozner A, Eilam R, Lotem J, Brenner O, Groner Y.
      EMBO Mol Med. 2011 Oct;3(10):593-604. doi: 10.1002/emmm.201100168. Epub 2011 Aug 8.

  1. NUS is carrying out an investigation – again. But my gut-feeling is that the Singapore government will be more interested in protecting Singapore’s reputation rather than protecting scientific rigour. The Straits Times article is behind a pay wall but Asia News Net carries the whole article here:
    The flaw in Ito’s work that RUNX3 is a tumour suppressor – if shown to be a flaw will invalidate agreat deal of subsequent work which built on that. Professor Yoram Groner of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot is reported to have said “After nine years of work, we realised that to replicate the results in Cell would be akin to producing a scientific miracle.”

    1. I bet you Cell refused to publish the
      Groner paper
      This paper is extremely thorough but Ito, this joke of a scientist, claims he is not convinced!!
