Resource Information

Depositor Comments

The N-terminal membrane tag on tdTomato contains
8 amino acids that direct myristoylation and palmitoylation (Muzumdar et al., 2007). 3 copies of the
HA tag were PCR amplified from pTHW (Drosophila Genomics Resource Center) and included a 5’ 
BsrGI restriction site and a 3’ EcoRI restriction site preceded by the TAA stop codon (5’ 
2007) was digested with BsrGI and EcoRI and the HA PCR fragment was ligated into this vector to
generate pSN20-mtdT-3xHA. This vector was then digested with XhoI and partially digested with
BamHI and cloned into pUASTattB (Bischof et al., 2007) to generate pUASTattB-mtdT-3xHA. The mtdT-3xHA reporter in vivo is as good as mCD8-GFP in labeling dendritic and axonal processes, or in labeling imaginal disc tissues.
However, it does not label neuronal cell bodies as well as mCD8-GFP as most of the mtdT-3xHA
signal is localized to the plasma membrane surface whereas mCD8-GFP, which also localizes to
intracellular membranes, allows for the cell soma to be better visualized.
