Depositor: Viviana Gradinaru
Purpose: Ready-to-use AAV Retrograde particles produced from pAAV-mDlx-NLS-mRuby2 (#99130). mDlx-driven NLS-mRuby2 expression. These AAV were produced with a retrograde serotype, which permits retrograde access to projection neurons. These AAV preparations are suitable purity for injection into animals.
Scientists Love Addgene
Addgene has been an exceptionally useful resource for us, both because they can be trusted to supply our plasmids to other labs efficiently, and because we ourselves are constantly ordering reagents of interest that other labs have deposited. Keep up the good work!

Our optogenetic tools are sweeping throughout neuroscience, helping scientists figure out how the brain works. Without Addgene helping provide these to the world, neuroscience would be moving at a much slower pace.
