|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by cloning the Influenza M2 and soybean APEX2 coding sequences into the pPTB vector.
APEX2, the second-generation monomeric enhanced APX mutant, contains an additional mutation (A134P) compared to APEX (K41D, W41F, E112K) and is used as a reporter to generate contrast for electron microscopy and also for proteomic tagging in living cells.
Other name of the plasmid is pM2Apex2.
