Detection of eGFP by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of 293T human embryonic kidney cell line either mock transfected or transfected with eGFP. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-GFPuv/eGFP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB42401) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for eGFP at approximately 29 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
GFP was detected in 2% paraformaldehyde immersion fixed HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with GFP-expressing protein using Mouse Anti-GFP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB42401) at 25 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL007). Lower panel shows transfected cells by GFPuv auto-fluorescence (green). View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
Detection of eGFP in HEK293 Human Cell Line Transfected with eGFP by Flow Cytometry.
HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with eGFP was stained with and either (A) Mouse Anti-GFP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB42401) or (B) Mouse IgG1 Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB002) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a 27 kDa protein originally isolated from the jellyfish Aequoreavictoria. In the presence of UV light (490-520 nm), it emits a green fluorescent color that can be used to pinpoint locations of various intracellular proteins. GFP is 238 amino acids (aa) in length. It is a globular monomer that has a tendency to dimerize. The monomer has the shape of a beta -barrel with a chromophore (aa 65-67) containing alpha -helix running up its center. GFPuv is the Aequorea sequence with three aa substitutions; Phe to Ser at # 99, Met to Thr at # 153, and Val to Ala at # 163. This form expresses faster and is 18-fold brighter than native GFP; excitation peaks at 395 nm and emission at 508 nm.
