Technical Data
Red Fluorescent Protein (RFP)
Well-characterized antibodies against short-sequence epitope tags are common in the study of protein expression systems.
RFP-tags are composed of 15 amino acid residue peptides derived from aa22-36 of red fluorescent protein (RFP) from the Discosoma sea anemone.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 0.05-0.2ug/ml
Western Blot: 0.1-1.0ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months after receipt at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. 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.
