Anti-mCherry Antibody Description
mCherry Antibody is ideal for Western Blotting. Fluorescent proteins such as Discosoma Red Fluorescent Protein (and its varients), and GFP are widely used in research practice. Both commonly serve as a markers for gene expression and protein localization. DsRed was isolated from sea anemone Discosoma sp. mushroom and GFP is originated from Aequorea victoria jellyfish. As DsRed and GFP share only 19% identity, therefore, in general, anti-GFP antibodies do not recognize DsRed protein and vice versa. Structurally, Discosoma red fluorescent protein is similar to Aequorea green fluorescent protein in terms of its overall fold (a ß-can) and chromophore-formation chemistry. However, Discosoma red fluorescent protein undergoes an additional steps in the chromophore maturation and obligates tetrameric structure. All mCherry antibodies have been pre-absorbed to eliminate any potential cross-reactivity to human, mouse and rat serum proteins. The antibodies are also confirmed for non-reactivity to GFP protein.
The immunogen is a mCherry mutant varient fusion protein of RFP corresponding to the full length amino acid sequence (234aa) derived from the mushroom polyp coral Discosoma.
Store mCherry Antibody at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Polyclonal anti-mCherry is designed to detect mCherry, RFP, and its variants. Anti-mCherry (Discosoma sp.) are intended for use in immunological assays including ELISA, western blotting, immunofluorescence, and fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS). Researchers should determine optimal titers for applications that are not stated. In addition, we performed conjugation of RFP antibodies to either fluorescent dyes, biotin or horseradish peroxidase to further facilitate RFP protein detection and quantification.
mCherry was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using Red Fluorescent Protein (Discosoma) coupled to agarose beads followed by solid phase adsorption(s) to remove any unwanted reactivities. Expect reactivity against mCherry, RFP and its variants: tdTomato, mBanana, mOrange, mPlum, mOrange and mStrawberry. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Rabbit Serum and purified and partially purified mCherry. No reaction was observed against Human, Mouse or Rat serum proteins. ELISA was used to confirm specificity at less than 0.1% of target signal.
