Technical Data
G8965-01
Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP)
Description:
GFP is a 27kD monomeric protein, which autocatalytically forms a fluorescent pigment. The wild type protein absorbs blue light (395nm) and emits green light (508nm) in the absence of additional proteins, substrates or co-factors. Intact, native GFP protein is required for fluorescence. The GFP chromophore results from the cyclization and oxidation of the sequence Ser65-Tyr66-Gly67. GFP fluorescence is stable, species independent and suitable for a variety of applications.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot, ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:500-1:1000
ELISA: 1:1000-1:10,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1000.
