Depositor Comments

N-terminal protein sequence is MKTIIALSYIFCLVFA (hemagglutinin [HA] signal peptide) + HHHHHHHHHH + GAP (from AscI site) + ENLYFQ*G (TEV protease cleavage site; cleavage at * leaves an extra G residue at the N-terminus of pGC-A).
Backbone vector is pFastBac1.
Construct design by Shangji Zhang.
Generate the bacmid in Escherichia coli strain DH10Bac cells according to the instructions from Invitrogen.
