Cloning Information

Resource Information

Depositor Comments

Contains the dat genomic sequences, including approximately 13 kb of its 50-flanking region, but excluding the last coding exon and 30-flanking region. The EGFP coding sequence is cloned in frame into dat exon 1.

Due to large size, transformation and DNA prep efficiencies may be low. Electroporation is recommended for transformation and low copy prep protocols using large starting volumes are recommended for purifying the DNA.
