Depositor Comments

Please note: This plasmid contains 2 amino acids that are different than the published NCBI sequence. The changes can be viewed in the Addgene Full Sequence link above- T->C at bp 1312 resulting in amino acid 35 being changed from S->P and a T->C change at bp 1556 resulting in amino acid 116 being changed from I->T. A new version of this plasmid with the corrected sequence is available (Addgene #11367).
