Depositor Comments

The Cep215 cDNA sequence was obtained from KIAA1633 clone (from Kazusa DNA Research Institute). Using PCR, a frameshift within the sequence was corrected and missing 5' coding information was obtained by PCR amplification from Marathon cDNA library (Clontech). Constructs were fused to yield the complete coding sequence of Cep215, and subcloned into a mammalian expression vector providing a Myc epitope-tag. All constructs were confirmed by sequencing.
