A note about JBC methods
It's well known that science progresses by building on the shoulders of those who came before. That's especially true for papers that report new tools — genetic constructs, small molecules, model organisms, etc. — that can be directly used by colleagues to jump-start a new project or resolve a technical hurdle. And at JBC, our high standards for rigor and reproducibility mean that readers can trust published tools to work as promised.
