Depositor Comments

A Kozak methionine initiator sequence and a Flag tag were added to the N terminus of rat PTP1B, which was amplified by PCR with the following primers: 5′-CTCGGATCCGCCACCATGGACTACAAGGACGACGATGACAAGAAGCTTGGGATGGAAATGGAGAAGGAATTCGAG-3′ and 5′-CTCTAGACTCGAGCGGCCGCTCAGTGAAAACATACCCGGTAACAG-3′. The PCR product was digested with BamHI and NotI and subsequently ligated into the corresponding sites of pCDNA3.1(+) (Invitrogen)

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results differ from the full plasmid sequence information from the depositing laboratory at bp# 889-910, indicating that the NheI and AflII sites are no longer present in the plasmid.
