Resource Information

Depositor Comments

The insert fragment with Sac I and Xho I sites was cloned into Sac I and Sal I sites of pEGFP-C1.
Thus, there is no Xho I and Sal I site in pEGFP-AF8.
The stop codon was also changed to TCG (..ctcggcTCGac-3’)
Note that the cloning strategy adds additional amino acids onto the C-terminus of the insert (STVPRARDPPDLDN), but this does not interfere with the function.
