tdTomato Polyclonal Antibody

Catalog No.:AB8181-200

Price / Unit: EUR 320.00

Source: Goat

Quantity/unit size: 600 µg

Description: Goat polyclonal antibody to tdTomato (red fluorescent protein). tdTomato protein is derived from DsRed, an engineered red fluorescent protein from so-called disc corals of the genus Discosoma. It is a genetic fusion of two copies of the dTomato gene, which has been specifically designed for low aggregation. It´s brightness and emission wavelength makes it ideal for live animal research.

Alternative names: Cherry fluorescent protein; DsRed, mCherry, red fluorescent protein, RFP antibody.

Form: Polyclonal antibody supplied as a 200 µl (3 mg/ml) aliquot in PBS, 20% glycerol and 0.05% sodium azide. This antibody is epitope-affinity purified from goat antiserum.

Immunogen: Purified recombinant peptide produced in E. coli.

Specificity: In 293HEK cells transfected with cds plasmid detects a band of 55 kDa by Western blot. It also detects tdTomato in brain sections by IHC. This antibody (AB8181) is specific for tdTomato and mCherry proteins. It does not cross-react to GFP (green fluorescent protein).

Reactivity: Reacts against tdTomato, mCherry, red fluorescent protein (DsRed) from so-called disc corals of Discosoma species.

Usage: Western blot                              1:500-1:2,000
Immunofluorescence                                1:50-1:500
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin)              1:50-1:500
Immunohistochemistry (frozen)                1:50-1:500
