Humanized TurboYFP TurboYFP codon usage is optimized for high expression in mammalian cells [Haas et al., 1996], but it can be successfully expressed in many other heterological systems. pTurboYFP-N FP612
pTurboYFP-B FP613
Destabilized TurboYFP variant (TurboYFP-dest1) TurboYFP-dest1 is produced by fusing the initial protein with PEST amino acid sequence encoded by region 422-461 of mouse ornithine decarboxylase gene [Li et al., 1998]. This sequence targets the protein to degradation and enables a rapid protein turnover. TurboYFP-dest1 retains spectral properties of the initial protein, but has shorter half-life (approximately 2 hrs) as measured by the analysis of fluorescence intensity of cells treated with a protein synthesis inhibitor, cycloheximide. Because of rapid turnover, TurboYFP-dest1 can be used to measure changes in gene expression. peTurboYFP-dest1 FP617
