The enhanced trafficking signals allow for better membrane targeting in mammalian cells resulting in 3-5 fold increase in currents.
Please note that there may be several sequence discrepancies between depositor's reference sequence and Addgene's quality control sequence. These changes are in vector regions only and should not affect plasmid function.
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
