TagRFP-T Sequence

TagRFP-T was derived from TagRFP with the following mutations: S2_S2delinsVSKGE/S158T/H230_K231insKLNGMDELY

Note: While the only significant mutation in TagRFP-T relative to the parental TagRFP is S158T, here we show the version with the addition of the EGFP N- and C- termini that is by far the most variant (e.g. on Addgene and SnapGene)

GenBank: ACD03281
