Depositor Comments

Linker between sfGFP and iCre-ERT2 is a clean GSAx9 sequence, similar in length to the mutated P2A sequence in the plasmid pCAG-sfGFP-iCre-ERT2 (#125749).

The sfGFP fluorescence from the sfGFP-iCre-ERT2 is dim, as described in Nam and Capecchi, 2020 ( and a Figshare page ( In short, it is not visible to the eyes, but can be detected with flow cytometry.

Similar to the situation with some other plasmids in this collection, the missing four nucleotides at the 5' end of the WPRE renders it unrecognizable to SnapGene, but the expression vector is functional.
