The antigen is recombinant full length protein.

The antibody is Protein G purified from culture supernatant.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

mCherry is a red fluorescent protein derived from DsRed which is isolated from disc corals and related to GFP (green fluorescent protein) (Shaner et al., 2004).  Fluorescent proteins are commonly used to tag proteins in study of their expression and in transgenic research.   Antibodies against fluorescent proteins such as mCherry are especially useful when amplification of the fluorescent signal is necessary or desired.

• red fluorescent protein mCherry
• Red Fluoroscent Protein


100 µl in PBS + 50% glycerol and 5 mM sodium azide. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots

Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
