Depositor Comments

The addition of the P2A-nls-dTomato allows for easy identification of GCaMP6 expressing cells exhibiting nuclear red fluorescence that does not significantly overlap with the cytosolic GCaMP signal. The GCaMP and fluorophore are physically uncoupled.

Permissions were obtained from Douglas Kim and the Clontech licensing office for depositing this new plasmid.
