Depositor Comments

The rat eGFP-KIF1A was a kind gift from Gary Banker (OHSU).

The tdTomato-KIF1A plasmid was constructed by restriction site removal of the eGFP from the eGFP-KIF1A plasmid and insertion of tdTomato.

Addgene NGS results found S33N within the KIF1A translation compared to NCBI reference sequence XP_017459420.1
