Depositor Comments

This vector was generated by Shiqian Li (Elina Ikonen Lab).

HPos model peptide was described by Adam Kassan et al. (J Cell Biol. 2013 Dec 23; 203(6): 985–1001.)

Benefits of using pEFIRES-P vector for stable overexpression in mammalian cells were described by Stephen Hobbs et al. (Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1998 Nov 18;252(2):368-72.).

pEFIRES-P was a gift from Dr. Olli Ritvos (University of Helsinki).
