Expanding the Camelid Antibody Product Line

While Chromotek GFP-Trap resin has become one of the best sellers from the Allele Biotech’ Camelid Antibody (VHH antibody) product line, more products have been added that will prove to be great tools for GFP-related research.

GFP is a powerful tool to study protein localization and dynamics in living cells. However, the photo stability and the quantum efficiency of GFP are not sufficient for Super-Resolution Microscopy (e.g. 3D-SIM or STED) of fixed samples from cells expressing GFP-fusion proteins to visualize specific structures. Furthermore, many cell biological methods such as HCl treatment for BrdU-detection, the EdU-Click-iT™ treatment or heat denaturation for FISH lead to disruption of GFP signal.

Now we offer our GFP-Trap Booster for reactivation, boosting and stabilization of GFP, suitable for acquiring strong and long lasting signals from GFP-fusion proteins. It is based on a specific GFP-binding protein as in GFP-Trap but coupled to the fluorescent dye ATTO 488 (from ATTO-TEC). For information, please read the product description of this week New Product of the Week: GFP-Trap booster, ABP-CM-GBOOSTR, http://www.allelebiotech.com/shopcart/index.php?c=221&sc=158

Promotion of the week: All mTFP1 and mWasabi fusion plasmids are 30% off for this week only

Preview of future new product: a similarly high quality product, the RFP-Trap that pulls down DsRed derived proteins including mRFP1, mCherry, mOrange, mPlum but also mRuby and RFP-tagged fusion proteins.
