In the course of carrying out experiments that were a direct extension of the above paper, we (the authors) discovered differences from those presented in the original article such that the primary conclusions of the paper are in question. Because of this, we are retracting the entire paper on the interaction of HIV‐1 Vpr and the B55 subunit of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) and its implications on Vpr‐mediated G2 cell cycle arrest. We are deeply regretful for any scientific misconceptions that have resulted from this study and apologize for any delay that readers may have incurred in their research.
