Depositor Comments

The taCasp3-T2A-TEVp transgene was generated by overlapping PCR of plasmids harboring taCasp3 and TEVp (Gray et al., 2010; Cell 142, 637-646 PMID: 20723762). This transgene was inserted in reverse orientation into the plasmid pAAV-EF1a-DIO-hChR2(H134R)-EYFP-WPRE-pA such that it replaced hChR2(H134R)-EYFP
