Depositor Comments

The catalytically inactive acetyltransferase mutant GCN5 (Y621A/P622A) (GCN5m) was generated by site-directed mutagenesis and verified by DNA sequencing.

pAdTrack can be recombined with pAdEasy to make adenoviral-GCN5m.
See He et al. for protocols.

Please note that Addgene quality control sequencing confirmed 2 additional mutations (E189G and K195N) which do not alter the plasmid's function.
