Technical Data
G8965-10B
Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP)
Description:
The jellyfish Aequorea victoria contains green fluorescent protein (GFP) that emits light in the bioluminescence reaction of the animal. GFP has been used widely as a reporter protein for gene expression in eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms, and as a protein tag in cell culture and in multicellular organisms. As a fusion tag, GFP can be used to localize proteins, to study their movement or to research the dynamics of the subcellular compartments where these proteins are targeted. GFP technology has revealed considerable new insights into the physiological activities of living cells.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunocytochemistry( IF): 1:100-1:1000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100- 1:1500.
Western Blot: 1:250-1:2500
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4░C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20░C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20░C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
