Depositor Comments

The Author's Map is a representative Brainbow 2.1 construct (M= membrane tethered).

Thy1 promoter. To linearize plasmid and remove vector sequences, EcoRI + PvuI , or alternatively NotI + PvuI are used (Note that PvuI also cuts inside the pUC18 vector).

Please see attached PDF for important additional information.
