Technical Data
G8966
Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), X-Adsorbed (Biotin)
Description:
The Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria is used as a fluorescent indicator for monitoring gene expression in a variety of cellular systems, including living organisms and fixed tissues. Unlike other bioluminescent reporters, GFP fluoresces in the absence of substrates, cofactors, or other intrinsic or extrinsic proteins. Purified GFP is a 27kD monomer consisting of 238 amino acids and emits green light (emission maximum at 509nm) when excited with blue or UV light.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:2000-1:10,000
ELISA: 1:10,000-1:50,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1000-1:5000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.

Immunogen:
Recombinant Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) fusion protein corresponding to full length aa sequence (246aa) derived from the jelly sh Aequorea victoria.
Purity:
Purified by immunoaf nity chromatography.
Form
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 10mg/ml BSA (IgG and protease free), 0.01% sodium azide. Labeled with Biotin.
Specificity:
Recognizes wild type, recombinant and enhanced forms of GFP (eGFP). Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-goat serum, anti-biotin and puri ed and partially puri ed Green Fluorescent Protein (Aequorea victoria) Serum. No reaction was observed against human, mouse and rat serum proteins.
