*FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY

  • Tool name: pCMV-GCaMP5G vector
  • Research fields: Cell biology;Neurobiology
  • Tool sub type: pEGFP-N1
  • Backbone size without insert: 3955
  • Bacterial resistance: Kanamycin
  • Selectable markers: Neomycin
  • Description: The single-wavelength genetically encoded calcium indicators (GECI), GCaMP3, was genetically engineered to have an increase dynamic range to detect action potentials several fold greater than the original. The improved GCaMP5 sensors have effectively been studied in neurons and astrocytes in multiple model organisms including mouse, Caenorhabditis, Drosophila and zebrafish.
