Rabbit anti mCherry antibody recognizes the red fluorescent mCherry protein, a monomeric engineered derivate of a fluorescent protein isolated from members of the Discosoma (mushroom coral) family. mCherry is a second generation fluorescent protein and by far the most popular red emitting fluorescent protein due to its high photostability and size (the other photostable red fluorescent protein tdTomato due to its tandem dimer nature is significantly larger than the 29 kDa mCherry protein). mCherry is optimally excited at a wavelength of 587nm and emits light at 610nm.
Fluorescent proteins are used as tags in the research environment and are fused to the N- or C-terminus of proteins of interest. They are tools enabling the visualization of proteins, protein-protein interactions and are used in cell-sorting and FRET, FRAP and FLIM imaging experiments.
