Depositor Comments

The thy1S promoter used in this vector was originally provided by Dr. Kawaski in Kanazawa university. The reference for the original work is "Ako et al (2011) Simultaneous visualization of multiple neuronal properties with single-cell resolution in the living rodent brain. Mol Cell Neurosci 48:246–257." We shortened their sequence to accommodate in the AAV vector. It was originally used to sparsely label the marmoset neurons (ref: Sadakane et al. In Vivo Two-Photon Imaging of Dendritic Spines in Marmoset Neocortex(1,2,3). eNeuro. 2015 Sep17;2(4).). For two-photon calcium imaging, we used the vector at high concentration, at which condition, there seems to be low cell type specificity.
