Derived from plasmid p205 pCMV-cre-del. Shortening of 5' untranslated region of Cre from 484 to 19 bp, an optimized Kozak translational start site, introduction of an EcoR1 site at nucleotide 509 and a PstI site at nucleotide 718, amino acid changes (S2A, H8PEF).

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
