Depositor Comments

*To create this plasmid, hNEAT1 was amplified from HeLa cDNA. The insert contains two mismatches (C->T at bp 78, and A->G at bp 91, an A->G at bp 1666, and a deletion of TA at bp 2031 and 2032 using the numbering of NR_028272.1) compared to the canonical hNEAT1 sequence. These variants are likely to be encoded in the HeLa genome, as they appeared in multiple clones, but this is yet to be verified by sequencing of HeLa genomic DNA.
