Immunofluoresence of COS7 cells expressing mCherry using chicken anti-mCherry antibody (green) and showing mCherry autofluorescence (red). Blue is DAPI nuclear stain showing nuclei of both transfected and untransfected cells. Staining shows 100% correspondence between chicken anti-mCherry signal and mCherry autofluoresence in transfected cells.
mCherry is a red fluorescent protein derived from DsRed which is isolated from disc corals and related to GFP (green fluorescent protein) (Shaner et al., 2004). Fluorescent proteins are commonly used to tag proteins in order to localize their expression in both cultured cells and in vivo. Antibodies against fluorescent proteins such as mCherry are especially useful when amplification of the fluorescent signal is necessary or desired. Our chicken anti-mCherry antibody is a highly sensitive reagent for detection of mCherry by western blot, immunocytochemistry, and immunohistochemistry.
Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least twelve months, provided they remain sterile. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half of its binding activity is lost.
Eggs from hens hyperimmunized with target were used to prepare an IgY fraction which was then subjected to antigen-specific affinity purification
Phosphate-buffered (10 mM) isotonic (0.9%, w/v) saline (“PBS," pH 7.2) with sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) added as a preservative.
Each new lot of this antibody is tested by Western blot on an mCherry overexpression cell lysate.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
