[edit] Construction details

pME-mCherryCAAX was made by PCR amplification of mCherry-CAAX, using primers to add att sites, followed by a BP reaction. mCherry-CAAX is mCherry with a C-terminal fusion of 21 amino acids of human Harvey Ras, encoding a prenylation signal. The original maxiprep that was distributed (clone 232) had an H80D point mutation. Nov 2007: The new version (clone 450) has had this mutation fixed and has no remaining mutations (thanks a lot to Seok-yong Choi).

Aug 2008: To our dismay, we realized that our current maxiprep of clone 450 again has mutation C238G, encoding the H80D amino acid change. We are currently reisolating the correct clone.

Oct 2009: We reisolated the correct clone, now named clone 550, and have been distributing this for quite a while. Clone 450 is now obsolete.
