Depositor Comments

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results indicate the Hox B8a insert in this plasmid has a D238E mutation when compared to GenBank entry NP_571195.1. The depositing laboratory believes these are allelic differences common with outbred strains and this is the exact plasmid they used in the associated publication.
