Recombinant RFP (wild type, sequence corresponding to RFP, Discosoma spp.) is intended for use as a control when using polyclonal or monoclonal Anti-RFP in immunological assays, in fluorometry, and in fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS). Rockland offers multiple purified hosts and conjugates of Anti-RFP that can detect RFP by ELISA and western blot. Biotin conjugated polyclonal anti-RFP used in a sandwich ELISA is well suited to titrate RFP in solution when used in combination with unconjugated Anti-RFP antibody. This product can be used as a control in western blots.

Target Details

DsRed  - View All DsRed Products
Recombinant RFP was synthesized with an amino terminal 6XHIS tag and was expressed in E. coli. A 3 step process was used to purify the protein: a partitioning separation using t-butanol, followed by hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC), and lastly IMAC nickel chromatography. Analysis by SDS-PAGE resulted in a pattern consistent with purified RFP and was estimated to be greater than 90% pure.

Application Details

Dot Blot, SDS-PAGE, WB
RFP Control is suitable as a control for polyclonal or monoclonal Anti-RFP in immunological assays. The molecular weight of RFP (calculated) is 27 kDa, but in a gel it is expected to run at approximately 28-30 kDa. Recombinant RFP has been tested in SDS-page, dot blot, and western blot.
