Rabbit anti red fluorescent protein antibody recognizes the red fluorescent protein DsRed isolated from the mushroom coral Discosoma striata. The protein is also known as RFP and dsdrFP583 (Day and Davidson 2009). DsRed is a ~27 kDa protein that is optimally excited at a wavelength of 558 nm and emits light at 583 nm (Day and Davidson 2009). In contrast to most other fluorescent proteins, which are monomers, DsRed tends to appear in a tetramer configuration.
