Depositor Comments

Vector allows for control of transgene expression at the level of translation. It is 1 vector in a set of 9 that spans a range of expression levels. Sequencing through any part of the IRES sequence is not advised. Expression of gene downstream of IRES remains constant, despite varying expression of gene upstream.
