Articles Citing this Plasmid
Please note that Addgene's sequencing results identified potential polymorphisms L11F and C579Y in the EGFR sequence when compared to GenBank reference sequence NP_958439.1. The expressed protein functions as described in the associated publication.
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.
