CommentsComplete somatic tranformant of CU428 cells with pHHO5K /neo construct. Phosphorylation sites 1- 5 of H1 changed to glutamic acid and 5 other sites changed to lysines, neo 2 cassette in 3’ flanking region for selection. See paper.

From the Gorovsky lab, University of Rochester. This strain has been cataloged by the Stock Center but not thawed.
