Technical Data
Red Fluorescent Protein (RFP)
Epitope tagging is a powerful and versatile strategy for detecting and purifying proteins expressed by cloned genes. To utilize this feature, protein expression vectors are typically engineered with a nucleotide sequence that encodes the peptide epitope tag. The gene of interest is cloned in-frame relative to the tag and, upon expression, the protein of interest is synthesized as a fusion protein with the peptide tag. Fusion protein detection and/or purification is mediated by highly specific antibodies to the engineered peptide, thus eliminating the need for antibodies to proteins from each newly cloned gene.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:10,0001:30,000 when detected with an anti-chicken horseradish peroxidase-conjugated secondary by ECL or by a colorimetric assay using DAB.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Recommended Secondary Antibodies:
