General Info

  • Alternative names
    • GFP
    • Green fluorescent protein
    • yfp
  • RelevanceFunction: Energy-transfer acceptor. Its role is to transduce the blue chemiluminescence of the protein aequorin into green fluorescent light by energy transfer. Fluoresces in vivo upon receiving energy from the Ca2+ -activated photoprotein aequorin.

    Subunit structure: Monomer.

    Tissue specificity: Photocytes.

    Post-translational modification: Contains a chromophore consisting of modified amino acid residues. The chromophore is formed by autocatalytic backbone condensation between Ser-65 and Gly-67, and oxidation of Tyr-66 to didehydrotyrosine. Maturation of the chromophore requires nothing other than molecular oxygen.

    Biotechnological use: Green fluorescent protein has been engineered to produce a vast number of variously colored mutants, fusion proteins, and biosensors. Fluorescent proteins and its mutated allelic forms, blue, cyan and yellow have become a useful and ubiquitous tool for making chimeric proteins, where they function as a fluorescent protein tag. Typically they tolerate N- and C-terminal fusion to a broad variety of proteins. They have been expressed in most known cell types and are used as a noninvasive fluorescent marker in living cells and organisms. They enable a wide range of applications where they have functioned as a cell lineage tracer, reporter of gene expression, or as a measure of protein-protein interactions. Can also be used as a molecular thermometer, allowing accurate temperature measurements in fluids. The measurement process relies on the detection of the blinking of GFP using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.

    Sequence similarities: Belongs to the GFP family.

    Biophysicochemical properties: Absorption: Abs(max)=395 nm
    Exhibits a smaller absorbance peak at 470 nm. The fluorescence emission spectrum peaks at 509 nm with a shoulder at 540 nm.

Application Western blot
We have used this protein for Western blot applications. On a 4-12% Bis-Tris gel, the protein runs to the expected molecular weight and is readily detectable using multiple anti-GFP antibodies in our hands. We observed excellent signal linearity across a large range of GFP amounts (as shown in the image) by Western blot and have not observed loss of protein or change in apparent molecular weight following long term storage at -20 C.

I can confirm ab84191 is not a tagged protein.

Attached is the result of the lab's excitation and emission test. They don’t have an excitation and emission curve, but on their equipment the excitation wavelength was 485nm and emission 535nm.
They haven’t verified it’s optimal peak, but there wi...

Unfortunately we haven't tested this in PBS and haven’t tried to label the GFP protein via primary amines, so we cannot confirm whether there will be lysines available on GFP to accomplish this labeling.

The molecular weight of GFP is 27 kDa. A 1.0 uM solution of GFP contains 27 micrograms of GFP per milliliter of solution. In this assay, 200 ul is added to each well, so for the 1 uM standard, the well contains 5.4 ug, and for the 2 uM standard, 10.8 u...

In regards to the exposure to the laboratory has regrettably not verified the stability of this protein under these mild oxidative conditions, e.g., 0.06% H2O2. Depending on the exposure time the answer would probably vary also. I am sorry therefore to...
