Resource Information

Depositor Comments

piRFP was derived from pEGFP-C1, whereby iRFP was inserted in place of EGFP. The iRFP in this plasmid has a stop codon at its end making it unsuitable for generating fusions. This plasmid can be used for cytoplasmic expression of iRFP or as a source of the iRFP gene.

For additional protocols on using iRFP in other tissue types please review:
Verkhusha. Deep-tissue photoacoustic tomography of a genetically encoded near-infrared fluorescent probe. Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed. 2012, 51: 1448-1451.
