Please note that the depositor's sequence is missing the H134R mutation, however Addgene's quality control sequence confirmed this mutation.
The H134R mutation present in the ChR2 sequence is a gain-of-function mutant that produces larger stationary photocurrents in comparison to the wild-type ChR2 sequence
