Depositor Comments

The multiple cloning sites of pCAGGS was modified to make pCAGEN (pCAGGS with EcoRI, XhoI, EcoRV and NotI sites).

Note that the Addgene quality control sequence and the author-supplied sequence do not match exactly, but critical features (such as the MCS restriction sites) appear to be intact. If you believe there is something functionally wrong with this plasmid, please report your concern to [email protected]
