Depositor Comments

The constitutive firefly luciferase expression plasmid pKM19 was generated by amplifying the firefly luciferase gene from pLUC-MCS and cloning it into pIEx-EGFP (a kind gift from Doug Brackney, The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, New Haven, CT USA) after the EGFP sequence was removed by digestion with XhoI and NcoI, using In-Fusion cloning (Takara Biosciences, Mountain View, CA USA).
