DsRed-Express Fluorescent Protein

DsRed-Express is a rapidly maturing variant of Discosoma sp. red fluorescent protein (DsRed). DsRed-Express fluorescent protein has enhanced solubility, reduced green emission, and faster maturation than the original DsRed. Although it is likely to have a tetrameric, DsRed-Express fluorescent protein displays a reduced tendency to aggregate (1).

DsRed-Express2 fluorescent protein has even higher solubility, and was designed for whole-cell and stem cell applications (2).

Anti-DsRed-Express Antibody

The DsRed-Express and DsRed-Express2 fluorescent proteins can be detected with the DsRed Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibodies. They can be differentiated from mCherry using the mCherry Monoclonal Antibody, which recognizes mCherry but not DsRed-Express or DsRed-Express2. Visit the anti-DsRed-Express Antibody page.

Recombinant DsRed-Express fluorescent protein is also available.
