This vector was generated by Shiqian Li (Elina Ikonen Lab).
HPos model peptide was described by Adam Kassan et al. (J Cell Biol. 2013 Dec 23; 203(6): 985–1001.)
Benefits of using pEFIRES-P vector for stable overexpression in mammalian cells were described by Stephen Hobbs et al. (Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1998 Nov 18;252(2):368-72.).
pEFIRES-P was a gift from Dr. Olli Ritvos (University of Helsinki).
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
