This article has been retracted by Xin Yi, PeiDan Wang, Zheng Wang, Jun Cai, MeiYing Hu, and GuoHua Zhong.
Reason: The authors have discovered a serious mistake in the paper. 3-Methylbutyl acetate was reported as binding to the protein. Upon further experimentation, it did not bind. The reason is unclear. After a reevaluation of this work, they no longer have confidence in the finding. Further validation is needed before a firm conclusion can be reached. The authors do not want to further mislead readers of this article.
