Sequence is identical to pN1-Lck-GCaMP2 http://www.addgene.org/24794 , except for three mutations in GCaMP2 to make GCaMP3: M153K (EGFP); T203V (EGFP) and N60D (CaM).
Note that the RSET tag refers to the first 37 amino acids of the insert, which include the His tag, T7 tag and Xpress tag: MGSHHHHHHGMASMTGGQQMGRDLYDDDDKDLATMVD
