Competing Interests

Gordana D. Vitaliano, Franco Vitaliano, and Perry F. Renshaw have an ownership interest in ExQor Technologies Inc., and stand to benefit financially if this technology is commercially adopted. ExQor Technologies owns patent rights to the clathrin protein nanotechnology (patents #7216038,#7219017, #7219018, #7393924). There are currently no products in development or marketed products related to this research. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
