Depositor Comments

This is Gs alpha with the C-terminal amino acids changed from Gs alpha to Gq alpha residues (QYELL to EYNLV). This construct allows some Gq-coupled receptors to stimulate Adenylate cyclase. There isn't much experience with this chimera at the moment. It may be useful for people who find the AC stimulation is better readout of receptor activation than PLC stimulation.

Contains an internal hemaglutinin epitope tage (DVPDYA) that has no effect on receptor coupling.

Please see supplemental document for G-protein chimera user manual.
