Depositor Comments

This vector can be used to create N- terminal or C-terminal mCherry tagged fusion proteins for expression in C. elegans. The mCherry and a modified MCS was inserted into the vector backbone using AgeI and EcoRI sites. See plasmid map and sequence for more information.

Note that mCherry has been codon optimized for C. elegans expression. See pCFJ90 (Plasmid #19327) for details on the mCherry protein sequence.
