The above articles, published from November 2006 to December 2010 in Molecular Vision, has been retracted by agreement among the authors and the journal's Editors-in-Chief. The decision to retract was agreed upon following realization that the articles contain substantially duplicate text, and in some instances, data, from a prior study already published in Molecular Vision.

On this basis, the Editors formally retract these articles from Molecular Vision.
