Depositor Comments

A-CREB aa sequence: DYKDDDDK-MASMTGGQQMGRDPDLEQRAEELARENEELEKEAEELEQELAELENRVAVLENQNKTLIEELKALKDLYCHKSD. The first 8 aa encode for the FLAG tag, the next 13 aa area a φ10 protein sequence, the next 31 aa are the amphipathic acidic extension, and the final group of aa are the mouse CREB leucine zipper, which continues to the natural C terminus of the protein.
