Expression vector of PhyB-mCherry-HRasCT in mammalian cells. Of note, the expression level of PIF3-mEGFP must be comparable or lower than that of PhyB. We usually co-transfect pCAGGS-PhyB-mCherry-HRasCT and pCAGGS-PIF3-mEGFP plasmids into HeLa cells with lipofection in a 50:1 ratio.
mCherry has a G229L mutation that does not affect function.
