Depositor Comments

The c-Myc sequence was inserted into the region encoding the 1st exofacial loop of mouse GLUT4 in the background of pmCherry-N1. The fragment of Myc-GLUT4-mCherry was then sub-cloned into pLenti-hiko vector via NheI + HpaI digestion.

Discrepancies between the Addgene QC sequence and the full sequence are not of functional concern.
