Competing Interests

I have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts. E. Bock and V. Berezin are shareholders of ENKAM Pharmaceuticals A/S, which owns the FGL peptide (less than 0.01% shares each). Nevertheless, this does not alter our adherence to all the PLoS Biology policies on sharing data and materials.
