What is Sfgfp used for?

SFGFP is a novel and robust variant designed for in vivo high-throughput screening of protein expression levels. It shows increased thermal stability and is able to retain its fluorescence when fused to poorly folding proteins.

What is Superfold GFP?

Superfolder GFP is a basic (constitutively fluorescent) green fluorescent protein published in 2005, derived from Aequorea victoria. It is reported to be a very rapidly-maturing weak dimer.

What is the difference between GFP and EGFP?

The main difference between GFP and EGFP is that the GFP (stands for Green Fluorescent Protein) is a protein that exhibits bright green fluorescence when exposed to blue light whereas the EGFP (stands for Enhanced Green Fluorescence Protein) exhibits stronger fluorescence than GFP.

Is GFP a membrane protein?

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusion proteins provide a potentially facile tool for identification of well expressed, properly behaved membrane proteins for biochemical and structural study.

Is Superfolder GFP monomeric?

Early efforts produced the enhanced variant EGFP and its monomeric derivative mEGFP, which have useful photophysical properties, as well as superfolder GFP, which folds efficiently under adverse conditions. We now describe msGFP2, which retains monomeric superfolder properties while being as photostable as EGFP.

What is the function of EGFP?

The EGFP mice expressed high levels of urinary 3-ureidopropionate, which is due to the down-regulated transcriptional level of β-ureidopropionase. The expression of EGFP in vivo also affects other metabolic pathways, including nucleic acid metabolism, energy utilization, and amino acids catabolism.

Do GFP antibodies recognize EGFP?

Specificity. GFP antibody (ab6556) is reactive against all variants of Aequorea victoria GFP such as S65T-GFP, RS-GFP, YFP, CFP, RFP and EGFP.

How many kDa is EGFP?


Oligomerization Organism Molecular Weight
Weak dimer Aequorea victoria 26.9 kDa

How is GFP used?

Biologists use GFP to study cells in embryos and fetuses during developmental processes. Biologists use GFP as a marker protein. GFP can attach to and mark another protein with fluorescence, enabling scientists to see the presence of the particular protein in an organic structure.
