Resource Information

Depositor Comments

CAG promoter (chicken beta-actin promoter with CMV enhancer) is more efficient than CMV promoter, see "Efficient selection for high-expression transfectants with a novel eukaryotic vector", Gene. 1991 Dec 15;108(2):193-9.

Please note that though there are some discrepancies between the assembled sequence from the depositing lab and Addgene's quality control sequence, this plasmid should function as reported.
