Resource Information

Depositor Comments

This is Gq alpha with the C-terminal amino acids changed from Gq alpha to Go alpha residues (EYNLV to GCGLY). Works the same as qi5 but (for unknown reasons) has a slightly lower basal PLC activity. This can increase the signal-to-noise ratio.

Contains an internal hemaglutinin epitope tag (DVPDYA) that has no effect on receptor coupling.

Please see supplemental document for G-protein chimera user manual.
