Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Chicken Purified B IC
Catalog #G8965-06
Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a 29kD fluorescent protein isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. Upon exposure to blue light (488nm), GFP strongly fluoresces (Emission max 507nm). GFP can be fused to proteins without significantly interfering with their assembly and function, making GFP a powerful tool for monitoring gene expression and protein localization in living cells
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml detects GFP from 50ug of rat brain lysate containing 25ng of purified GFP. Also detected a GFP-fusion protein from a transfected E. coli cell lysate. Rat brain lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with G8965-06 (1ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using a rabbit anti-chicken secondary antibody conjugated to HRP* and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunocytochemistry: Reported to show positive immunostaining in cells transfected with an expression vector encoding GFP.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Recommended Secondary AntibodiesI1906 IgY, Chicken Pab Rb x Ch
I1906-10 IgY, Chicken (HRP) Rb x Ch
I1906-12 IgY, Chicken (FITC) Rb x Ch
I1906-14 IgY, Chicken (AP) Rb x Ch
