Depositor Comments

This plasmid was specifically designed to allow high levels of RAD51 expression in E.coli along with the ability to incorporate non-natural amino acids using amber suppressor technology. It was used to incorporate an artificial amino acid to mimic tyrosine phosphorylation (published in Subramanyam S, et. al. (2016). Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 113(41):E6045-E6054).
