for additional information.

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

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