Depositor Comments

The MAP2-GFP lentiviral reporter plasmid pGZ-hMAP2 was purchased from System Biosciences (SR10047PA-1). The MAP2 promoter sequence from this plasmid was then cloned along with the Gateway cassette of pEF-DEST51 into the backbone of FUdeltaGW-rtTA (Addgene plasmid 19780) following removal of the ubiquitin promoter-rtTA sequence to produce FU-MAP2-Gateway (Addgene plasmid #43915).

This destination vector was subsequently used to generate MAP2-GCaMP3 (GCaMP3 cloned from G-CaMP3, Addgene plasmid 22692).

The V5 and His tags present in the vector backbone are not expressed with the GCaMP3 insert.
