Please note that the reference sequence from the depositor does not have the K299R mutation. Addgene has sequenced this plasmid and verified this mutation.
There is also an additional mutation in this plasmid - L516I. The L516I mutation, or SNP, has been present from the very beginning (~1995). The crystal structure of Pak1 uses this clone, so it is present there too. The depositor does not think it affects function in any way.
Pak1 may contain a G401S mutation. Depositor states that this mutation should not affect plasmid function.
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
