The idea for PLOS began in 2000, when an open letter was circulated by founders Harold Varmus, Patrick Brown and Michael Eisen. Nearly 34,000 scientists from 180 countries signed. Recognizing that most existing journals were resistant to changing their business practices, in 2003 we launched our first fully Open Access journal in order to empower researchers to make science immediately and publicly available online, without restrictions. Our Article Processing Charge model, though revolutionary at the time, would soon pave the way for a new w [...]

A unique subfamily of calmodulin-dependent Ca(2+)-ATPases was recently identified in plants. In contrast to the most closely related pumps in animals, plasma membrane-type Ca(2+)-ATpases, members of this new subfamily are distinguished by a calmodulin-regulated autoinhibitor located at the N-terminal instead of a C-terminal end. In addition, at least some isoforms appear to reside in non-plasm ...

The arctiid moth Utetheisa ornatrix is protected against predation by pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA) that it sequesters as a larva from its food plant. Earlier work had shown that males transmit PA to the female with the sperm package and that the female bestows part of this gift on the eggs, protecting these against predation as a result. We now show that the female herself derives protection f ...

Genetic structure of Aedes albifasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae) populations in central Argentina determined by random amplified polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction markers.
Sousa, G.B. de et al. 
The floodwater mosquito, Aedes albifaciatus (Macquart), is the main vector of western equine encephalomyelitis virus in Argentina. Previous studies on the genetic structure of this species using allozymes showed low levels of polymorphism, absence of subpopulations at distinct habitats, and moderate differentiation among localities separated up to 500 km. To examine gene flow using other genet ...
