Depositor Comments

See author's map for more information. CAG–GFP uses the backbone of pCLNCX v.2, and the expression of GFP is driven by the compound promoter CAG. This vector also contains the woodchuck hepatitis virus posttranscriptional element, which reportedly increases protein production by stabilizing the transcript.
