Depositor Comments

Can be used for constitutive expression of H2B-citrine.
Can be silenced by TetR-KRAB or rTetR-KRAB (using doxycycline).
It can be site-specifically integrated in a PhiC31 attP site (the plasmid contains a PhiC31 attB site).
The reporter gene is flanked by two full length (1.2kb each) chicken HS4 insulators on each side.
