Cloning Information

Resource Information

Depositor Comments

This is Gq alpha with an HA epitope engineered into an internal site that does not seem to affect receptor coupling in multiple studies. Epitope tagged by Paul Wilson, see Wedegaertner, JBC 268: 25001-25008. The 5' non-coding sequences were removed, but the 3' non-coding sequences remain, as in Strathmann & Simon (1990) PNAS 87:9113-9117. The parent construct has been donated to the ATCC by the Bourne Lab.

There is a 1bp insertion, a 5bp insertion, and a 1bp deletion when author sequence is aligned with Addgene quality control sequence. These differences are between the stop codon and the SP6 sequence.
