Depositor Comments

This plasmid has been used with locus-specific CRISPR/Cas9 to add a mEGFP tag to the C-terminus of human GJA1 in WTC human induced pluripotent stem cells by the Allen Institute for Cell Science. Linker (AA) sequence: DPPVAT. After protein tagging using this donor template plasmid and CRISPR/Cas9 reagents, transfected cells may exhibit varying intensity levels of fluorescence, likely due to editing precision. To obtain cells of uniform intensity levels, see our protocol for fluorescence-assisted cell sorting and subcloning of transfected cells (https://www.allencell.org/instructional-videos-and-tutorials-for-cell-methods.html). Further, we recommend PCR-based assays for identifying precisely edited clones as previously described (https://www.molbiolcell.org/doi/abs/10.1091/mbc.e17-03-0209).
