Depositor Comments

EYFP tagged at N-terminus with 3 copies of Myc epitope tags and at C-terminus with a copy of FLAG and polyhistidine (His6) epitope tags. ECFP tagged at the C-terminus with one copy of hemagglutinin (HA) and polyhistidine (His6) epitope tags.

EGFP of pIERS2-EGFP (Clontech) replaced at an 803 bp BstXI-NotI, PCR amplified fragment with ECFP from pECFP-Mito (Clontech) tagged at the C-terminus with a single copy of hemagglutinin (HA) and polyhistidine (His6) epitope tags; IRES-dependent translation yields ECFP-HA-His6 fusion protein. 895 bp Sac I/Eco RI fragment containing amino terminal 3 Myc epitope tags fused to EYFP obtained from PCR amplification of pEYFP-N1 (Clontech), which is also tagged at C-terminus with a single copy of FLAG and polyhistidine (His6) epitope tag; cap-dependent translation yields 3Myc-EYFP-Flag-His6 fusion protein.
