Resource Information

Depositor Comments

DEVG sequence in linker prevents cleavage by caspases as control for pECFP-DEVDR-Venus (Addgene plasmid #24537).

constructed by ligating Venus (YFP) between BamHI and EcoRI sites in pECFP-C1 and ligating linkers encoding cleavage sequences as BspEI-BamHI fragments between ECFP and Venus. Multiple serine and glycine residues flanking the cleavage sequences were added to increase linker flexibility and substrate accessibility. See for more information.
