Resource Information

  • Supplemental Documents
  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    Human Smad3 cDNA was a gift from Joan Massague (Addgene plasmid #27010), mNeonGreen (NG) gene was obtained from Allele Biotechnology (ABP-FP-MNEONSA), mCerulean3-C1 cDNA was a gift from Klaus Hahn (Addgene plasmid #22030)

Depositor Comments

Human Smad3 and mouse Smad3 contain 100% sequence identity. The NG-Smad3 construct was placed downstream of a CMV promoter, and the mCerulean3 gene was fused with a 3× nuclear localization sequence (NLS) and placed downstream of an SV40 promoter.
