Resource Information

Depositor Comments

mCherry is in the "even" or "0" reading frame starting from the exon.
This is a Tol2-based FlExTrap vector. It consists of a highly mutagenic gene trap contained within the FlEx cassette that can be stably inverted by both Cre and Flp recombinases. FRT/F3 and loxP/lox5171 are incompatible recombination sites used for the Flp and Cre recombinases, respectively, to stably invert the cassette. The reporter gene, mCherry, has its own initiation codon.
