Depositor Comments

The pPK348 plasmid was derived by inserting the GFP cassette from pPD103.87 (Addgene plasmid 1524) flanked by XbaI ends into the unique SpeI site present in exon 8 of ptc-3 and carries the entire predicted ptc-3 locus comprised of a 6.9 kb genomic coding region fused in-frame to GFP and more than 5 kb of 5′ upstream sequence, including the putative promoter

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results identified several mismatches in the region of bp#722-824 when compared to the full plasmid sequence provided by the depositing laboratory. The depositor states that these mismatches are not a concern for the function of the plasmid.
