Depositor Comments

From the author: The insert is an alternatively spliced domain (which we have confirmed in several ways) that is common to the prevalent ZO-1 species in most epithelial cells. It is adjacent to the conserved ZU5 domain.

This isoform is not present in all of the cDNAs we have worked with, but we chose to use this isoform for our GFP ZO-1 studies. This is the cDNA and spliceform that I used in all of our studies.

The alt splice is actually 60 bp, and is as follows:
