Depositor Comments

m168 is a mutated version of the Sinbis virus envelope protein, which includes the following mutations:

E3 domain--delta 61-64
E2 domain-- SLKQ68-71AAAA and KE159-160AA
ZZ domain of protein A inserted into E2 domain

This plasmid was created using Addgene Plasmid pCMV-VSV-G (#8454), where the VSV-G was removed and replaced with the Sindbis virus envelope protein (above).

See attached map for details on construction and recommended restriction digest analysis.

Please note that the Addgene sequencing results also found an R172G point mutation in the E2 domain--this is not expected to alter the function of the plasmid.
