mOrange2 fluorescent protein
Living Colors mOrange2 is an extremely bright orange fluorescent protein monomer ideal for use as a tag or reporter. The mOrange2 fluorescent protein mutant derived from a monomeric mutant of DsRed, which was developed in Dr. Roger Tsien’s lab (Nathan C Shaner et al. 2004; Wang et al. 2004; Shu et al. 2006) by directed mutagenesis (Campbell et al. 2002; N C Shaner et al. 2008). See our fluorescent protein quick guide for information on brightness and compatible microscope filters.
- Bright orange fluorescent protein monomers ideal for reporter studies
- mOrange2 excitation and emission maxima are 549 and 565 nm, respectively
- Can be detected on a Western blot using our mCherry antibody
- Tracking cell, organelle, and protein movement
- Bright reporter for mammalian cells
