mPlum fluorescent protein
Far-red proteins such as mPlum avoid the natural green autofluorescence found in plants and animals and are preferred for in vivo imaging. Living Colors mPlum is a fruit fluorescent protein which was developed in Dr. Roger Tsien’s lab (Shaner et al. 2004; Wang et al. 2004; Shu et al. 2006) by directed mutagenesis of a monomeric mutant of DsRed (Campbell et al. 2002). It has demonstrated stable expression and performed successfully in numerous fusion applications.
