Competing Interests

I have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: 3-V Biosciences is a commercial organization developing antiviral agents. 3-V Biosciences provided support for part of the research but had no decision on how to perform or publish the research. This does not alter our adherence to all PLoS Pathogens policies on sharing data and materials.
