Depositor Comments

Please visit the Molecular Biosensor and Imaging Center website for current protocols and information about dyes to be used in combination with the proteins expressed from this plasmid.

Note: Compared to the depositor's provided genbank file, Addgene's quality control sequencing finds one single nucleotide mismatch, G->A at bp 6867, which causes a G to R amino acid residue substitution. This discrepancy falls between the functional domains, and although it destroys a cloning site (BamHI) from the original clone construction, it should not otherwise alter plasmid function.
