Depositor Comments

This plasmid contains mTFP1.0, and not EBFP2, as suggested by the linear plasmid map image file.

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results identified a few discrepancies when compared to GenBank ID JF267350. The depositing laboratory states that these differences are not a concern for the function of the plasmid. The full plasmid sequence has been assembled and not entirely confirmed by sequencing. Additional discrepancies may exist.

This plasmid was constructed using the following restriction enyzmes:
Bgl II / Not I - loxP sites
Not I / Xho I - EGFP-HSV
Xho I / Kpn I - mTFP1.0-HA
Kpn I / Xba I - mKO2-V5

NotI is not a unique cutter--it is present twice in the plasmid. The XbaI site has been confirmed by Addgene's sequencing results, but it not present in the full plasmid sequence.
