True-red fluorescent protein TurboFP602
- Bright true-red fluorescence
- Fast maturation, high pH-stability
- Proven suitability to generate stably transfected cell lines
- Recommended for gene expression analysis and cell and organelle labeling in an autofluorescent environment
Performance and use
TurboFP602 can be expressed and detected in a wide range of organisms. Mammalian cells transiently transfected with TurboFP602 expression vectors produce bright fluorescence in 8-12 hrs after transfection. No cytotoxic effects or visible protein aggregation are observed.
Despite its dimeric structure, TurboFP602 performs well in some fusions. However, for protein labeling applications we recommend using specially optimized monomeric TagFPs.
TurboFP602 suitability to generate stably transfected cells has been proven by Marinpharm company. Cell lines expressing TurboFP602 are commercially available.
TurboFP602 can be used in multicolor labeling applications with blue, cyan, green, and yellow fluorescent dyes.
