Technical Data
Cyan Fluorescent Protein, Recombinant (CFP)
Molecular Biology Storage: -70CShipping: Blue Ice
The recombinant CFP (Cyan Fluorescent Protein) is expressed and purified from transformed E. coli using a method that ensures high purity and maximal CFP fluorescence. Endotoxin has been removed, and the protein is suitable for cell culture applications. The protein is a 29kD monomer with 264aa, and an N-terminal His tag, Ex./Em.=458/480nm, Extinction coefficient: 26000M-1CM-1.

Suitable for use as a control reagent for CFP expression studies or as a labeling reagent. Also suitable for use as standards for SDS-PAGE, Western blot of CFP transfected cells, label other proteins, calibration of fluorometers and flow cytometers, fluorescence microscope or microinjection of CFP into cells and tissues, etc. The recombinant CFP is ideal for fusion tag applications and is perfect for triple labeling with EGFP, RFP Cat #R1310-01B, or YFP, Cat #Y2043-01. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
