Red fluorescent protein JRed
- True-red fluorescence
- Proven suitability to create stably transfected cell lines
JRed is a red fluorescent protein obtained by mutagenesis of Anthomedusae jellyfish chromoprotein [Shagin et al., 2004]. JRed fluorescence (excitation/emission maxima are 584 and 610 nm, respectively) can be detected using most popular filter sets.
The vectors encoding JRed protein are discontinued by Evrogen.
