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.
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.
