In the March 3, 2011 issue of Nature, there is a retraction of the Letter "Mediation of pathogen resistance by exudation of antimicrobials from roots" [Nature 434, 217–221 (2005)]. I am intrigued by the first sentence of the note:
The authors wish to retract this Letter after a key reference by Walker et al. (ref. 9 in this Letter) was retracted from the scientific literature.
It turns out that the 2003 Walter et al. J. Agric. Food Chem. paper (withdrawn in October 2009) and the 2005 Nature Letter were from the same group. Overall, it took ~6 years each for the two papers to be retracted. As of today, they have been cited 76 and 84 times respectively accordingly to Google scholar.
