Red fluorescent protein (RFP) is derived from Discosoma sea anemone. This antibody (Anti-RFP, Cat. #AB-332) recognizes native and denatured forms of RFP. The antigen for this antibody is present in all of these fluorescent molecules: RFP, tag-RFP, turbo-RFP, DeRed, mCherry, and mOrange. The epitope for the antibody is part of the RFP N-terminal sequence.
RFP is similar to GFP and can be used as a reporter of expression and transcription marker. It is effective for ELISA, immunoblotting (dot blot and western blot), immunoprecipitation, and immunostaining.
