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.

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
