GFP Rabbit anti-Tag, Alexa Fluor® 488, Polyclonal, Invitrogen
Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen A21311
To achieve appropriate staining results on formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissue sections, protease Type XIV (Actinase E) pretreatment is required. The recommended dilution and incubation for protease is 1-2 mg/mL at 37°C for 10 minutes. Other enzyme and Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval pre-treatment methods may not be suitable for this particular antibody. Frozen sections have been successfully stained after fixation with acetone at 4°C.Epitope tags provide a method to localize gene products in a variety of cell types, study the topology of proteins and protein complexes, identify associated proteins, and characterize newly identified, low abundance or poorly immunogenic proteins when protein specific antibodies are not available. Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, has quickly become a versatile marker for monitoring physiological processes, visualizing protein localization, and detecting transgenic expression, and a powerful research tool for assessing gene expression and subcellular protein distribution in fixed or living cells. GFP is excited by and brightly fluoresces when exposed to UV or blue light. This feature makes it ideal as a marker for use in fluorescence microscopy, cytometry, tagging fusion proteins, and assaying transcriptional regulation from gene promoters in vivo. Numerous GFP variants with enhanced and shifted emission spectra (blue, green, and yellow) have been developed through amino acid substitutions at specific residues.
