Competing Interests

The authors have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: This study was partly funded by The Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research Inc. The authors have the following pending US patent application: 61/168,275 International patent application WO 2010/117843 A2. There are no further products in development or marketed products to declare. Chesapeake-PERL Inc. played a role in recombinant protein production, preparation, and purification. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials, as detailed online in the guide for authors.
