AcGFP1 Fluorescent Protein

AcGFP1 (Aequorea coerulescens GFP) is a monomeric green fluorescent protein with spectral properties similar to those of EGFP. The AcGFP1 fluorescent protein is very stable, allowing you to perform studies over an extended period of time. AcGFP1 can be used to visualize and measure gene expression in a variety of organisms from bacteria to higher plants and animals.

A Better Alternative to EGFP

The AcGFP1 and EGFP sequences have 94% homology at the amino acid level. However, AcGFP1 is a superior alternative for fusion applications because it is a monomer. In contrast, the Aequorea victoria GFPs, AvGFP and EGFP, have been reported to form dimers (1–2).

The monomeric nature of the AcGFP1 fluorescent protein has been confirmed by FPLC gel filtration chromatography, sucrose density gradient ultracentrifugation, and pseudonative gel electrophoresis (please see the Images & Data tab for details).

Anti-AcGFP1 Antibody

We offer four antibodies that detect AcGPF1. Visit the anti-AcGFP1 Antibody page.
