Depositor Comments

Although the kanamycin resistance marker is present in the full plasmid sequence, the depositing lab has never used Kan or Kan/Amp selection for this plasmid. In Addgene's experience, the kanamycin resistance is not functional. According to the Luo lab, the function of this plasmid is not affected.
