Green-to-red photoswitchable fluorescent protein Dendra2

- Irreversible photoconversion from a green to a red fluorescent form

Dendra2 is an improved version of a green-to-red photoswitchable fluorescent protein Dendra, derived from octocoral Dendronephthya sp. [Gurskaya et al., 2006]. Dendra2 exhibits faster maturation and brighter fluorescence both before and after photoswitching than that of Dendra.

The vectors encoding Dendra2 protein and anti-Dendra2 antibodies are discontinued by Evrogen.
