Depositor Comments

There is a BamHI site in between the Eng and PD coding sequences.

Drosophila Engrailed (Eng)contains H22P and L158P compared to closest reference sequence (AAA65478.1). Depositor states that these mutation should not affect function.

Mouse Pax8 contains a P2A mutation. Depositor states that this mutation should not affect plasmid function.
