Product Type Proteins & Peptides
Application ELISA
Western Blotting

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a 27kD protein which was originally identified in the photo organs of Aequorea victoria (A. victoria) jellyfish. GFP is a naturally fluorescent protein which emits green light at a maximum wavelength of 509 nm when excited by blue or UV light. In A.victoria, calcium ions bind and activate the protein aequorin causing the release of blue fluorescence, which is then absorbed by GFP resulting in the release of green fluorescence. In the laboratory, the GFP protein has been used extensively as a reporter molecule to label, and study, cellular and subcellular proteins in living cells using a wide range of biological applications, including oncology, cardiovascular diseases, brain research, embryology and plant sciences, just to name a few. For the quantitation of the expression of a specific protein, tagged with GFP in these model systems, antibodies to GFP have proven to be of value in immunoblotting studies and ELISA protocols.

Wild type recombinant GFP (from A.victoria) expressed in E.coli and purified by high resolution gel filtration.

Each vial contains 100µg 1mg/ml purified recombinant GFP (wild type) in 10 mM TRIS buffer pH 8.0, containing 0.02% sodium azide.

Formulation: Each vial contains 100µg 1mg/ml purified recombinant GFP (wild type) in 10 mM TRIS buffer pH 8.0, containing 0.02% sodium azide.

Concentration: 1mg/ml

The purity of the recombinant GFP (wild type) protein is >98%, confirmed by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, specific absorbance peaks, HPLC and A397/280 ratios.

Western Blotting|ELISA

The antibody may be stored at +4°C. For prolonged storage prepare appropriate aliquots and store at or below -20°C. Prior to use, an aliquot is thawed slowly in the dark at ambient temperature, spun down again and used to prepare working dilutions by adding sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance or the concentration of the product.

Shipping Conditions: The antibody is shipped at ambient temperature
