Depositor Comments

Bgl II-KpnI fragment of pEGFP-AF8 (Addgene plasmid # 117803) was recloned into BamHI and KpnI site of pmKO1-MC1.

Note that the cloning strategy adds additional amino acids onto the C-terminus of the insert (STVPELQQRIRETREQSLNKRPRL), but this does not interfere with plasmid function. The extra sequence includes an MCS for adding tags to the C-terminus of the insert.
