GFP sdAb - FluoTag-X4 - N0304-AF647-L

GFP is a widely used green fluorescent protein tag

 

This product was developed by   

NanoTag-Biotechnologies

Camelid single domain antibodies (sdAbs) consist only of one antigen binding site of an Alpaca heavy chain antibody. With only ~15 kDa, these Tags are about 10-times smaller than conventional IgG antibody molecules.

Background

Green fluorescent protein GFP and its derivates have become very popular and universal tools in cell biology. It is a monomeric and fast maturating protein with high photostability. Due to its sensitivity to pH changes it can be used as a biological pH indicator.

 

Unlabeled variants and several modifications of sdAbs like biotin, fluorophore or DBCO conjugation are available.

 

In FluoTag®-Q each fluorophore is coupled to exactly one FluoTag, which in turn binds to its target molecule in a monovalent fashion. The high binding affinity and a coupling efficiency of > 95% guarantees a highly linear relation between the number of target molecules and the intensity of fluorescence. This enables a direct count of the target molecule of interest. The fluorophore is located exceptionally close to the recognized epitope (< 1.5 nm), which is ideal for all microscopy techniques.

In FluoTag®-X two fluorophore molecules are site-specifically coupled to each FluoTag molecule. Therefore, the reagent simultaneously targets up to four fluorophores (in X4 variants) to the protein of interest, which ensures extra-bright signals. Owing to the small size of the FluoTags, the distance between the target epitope and each fluorophore is ~ 3 nm.
In comparison to detection systems using conventional antibodies, FluoTag-X can thus improve the localization accuracy by 10-15 nm. Both features - superior brightness and precise fluorophore placement - render the FluoTag-X products excellent tools for all microscopy techniques.
