Here is a list of the constructs in the Tol2kit. Click on any construct name (second column) to see more information. 12/18/07: Clone pages now include annotated sequence in Genbank format.

Here are insert sequences for entry clones, and 5' and 3' ends for destination clones, along with a description of how to assemble predicted sequences for expression clones.

  • # is the Chien lab stock number
  • made by shows who made the construct:
    • CG: Clemens Grabher, Look lab
    • BM: Ben Mangum, Chien lab

    • EF, Esther Fujimoto, Chien lab
    • KMK, Kristen Kwan, Chien lab

  • ver shows the version of the Tol2kit in which this construct first appeared.
  • *:pDestTol2pA and pDestTol2CG have been superseded by pDestTol2pA2 and pDestTol2CG2. They are not formally part of the v1.0 release, and are no longer being distributed.
  • **:clone 232 was superseded by clone 450, which lacks the H80D mutation in mCherryCAAX. Subsequently, some preps of clone 450 turned out to still be clone 232, so we cleaned it up again, and clone 450 has been superseded by 550.
  • MTA? indicates whether an MTA is associated with each clone. "KK", Koichi Kawakami.
