Introduction

rGFP, also known as Green Fluorescent Protein, is a protein produced by the jellyfish (Aequorea Victoria) that produces bioluminescence in the green zone of the noticeable spectrum. Green Fluorescent Protein is a useful and ubiquitous instrument for producing chimeric proteins, where it functions as a fluorescent protein tag. rGFP is expressed in most known cell types and is used as a noninvasive fluorescent marker in living cells and organisms. Green Fluorescent Protein permits a broad range of applications where it has functioned as a cell lineage tracer, reporter of gene expression, or as a measure of protein-protein interactions.

Description

rGFP Aequorea victoria produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 238 amino acids (1-238 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 26.8 kDa.
rGFP is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered yellowish solution.

Formulation

The Green Fluorescent Protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl, pH-8 and 10% Glycerol.

Stability
