The amino acid sequence of this plasmid matches the NCBI published sequence. No functional differences between the plasmid with the point mutations (Addgene #1860) and this plasmid have been observed thus far. In this version, silent point mutations in the N-terminus were created to destroy the NotI site and facilitate cloning. These will not change the amino acid sequence of the protein. The ORF sequence of the new insert has been uploaded and is linked from this datasheet.
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
