Green fluorescent protein TagGFP
- Fast protein maturation
- Bright green fluorescence
- Proven availability to generate stably transfected cell lines
- Monomeric protein with successful performance in fusions
- Recommended for protein labeling
TagGFP is an enhanced bright mutant of the Aequorea macrodactyla GFP-like protein [Xia et al., 2002]. TagGFP possesses bright green fluorescence with excitation/emission maxima at 482 and 505 nm, respectively. It is optimized for expression at 37oC. TagGFP is more pH-stable than EGFP.
The vectors encoding TagGFP protein are discontinued by Evrogen.
