Articles Citing this Plasmid
Vector for targeting E2-Crimson to the ER in mammalian cells.
Substitutions in E2-Crimson relative to DsRed-Express2 are: E32V, Q66F, V71A, V73I, K83L, L85Q, F118L, L150N, I161N, K163M, V175C, Y193H, S197Y
IMPORTANT NOTE: There is an 82-bp intron after the ER signal sequence. The signal sequence will be in frame with the final product.
