  • Mutation
    YFP (1-158) includes a substitution of Met for Gln-69. GBeta-5 was amplified via PCR, which added an N-terminal linker sequence (RSIAT), a 5' BamHI site, and a 3' BglII site. Cloning into the BglII site of YFP(1-158) destroyed the BamHI site.
  • Entrez Gene
    GNB5 (a.k.a. GB5, IDDCA, LADCI)
  • Tag / Fusion Protein
    • YFP(1-158) was fused to the amino terminus of Gbeta-5. (N terminal on insert)
