  • Relevance
    Fluorescent proteins 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.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

We have very few antibodies against RFP that are not raised in rabbit. Of these, the best candidate for having no reaction with GFP isab109809 as it is raised against the N-terminal region of the protein which has very poor homology with GFP. However, none of these products have been expressly tested agianst GFP.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please contact me should you have any questions.
