Monoclonal anti-GFP is designed to detect enhanced GFP and GFP containing recombinant proteins. This antibody can be used to detect GFP by ELISA (sandwich or capture) for the direct binding of antigen. Biotin conjugated monoclonal anti-GFP is well suited to titrate GFP in a sandwich ELISA in combination with Rockland's polyclonal anti-GFP (600-101-215) as the capture antibody. Only use the monoclonal form for the detection of enhanced or recombinant GFP. Polyclonal anti-GFP detects all variants of GFP tested to date. The biotin conjugated detection antibody is typically used with streptavidin conjugated HRP (code # S000-03) or other streptavidin conjugates. The use of polyclonal anti-GFP results in significant amplification of signal when fluorochrome conjugated polyclonal anti-GFP is used relative to the fluorescence of GFP alone. For immunoblotting use either alkaline phosphatase or peroxidase conjugated anti-GFP to detect GFP or GFP containing proteins on western blots. Optimal titers for applications should be determined by the researcher.
GFP Monoclonal Antibody was prepared from tissue culture supernatant by Protein A affinity chromatography. Assay by Immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Mouse Serum. Reactivity is observed against recombinant Green Fluorescent Protein (000-001-215) from Aequorea victoria by both Western blot and ELISA. No reaction is seen against RFP.
