Renilla reniformis Green Fluorescent Protein Data Sheet
Catalog No. 0310
Renilla reniformis (sea pansy) is a species of soft coral that is characterized by a green
fluorescence. The green fluorescent protein obtained from this organism exhibits
nearly symmetrical excitation and emission peaks with a relatively small Stokes shift.1
This is in contrast to the more commonly employed GFP from Aequorea victoria which
has two wavelengths at which excitation occurs, and a broader emission spectra. The
monomer extinction coefficient for Rr-GFP is about 5.5-fold higher than the Aequorea
GFP which, in conjunction with a slightly higher quantum yield, produces a brighter
fluorescence. Recombinant Renilla reniformis GFP has the same level of fluorescence as
the native protein.2

Instructions for Use
The measurement of fluorescence is instrument-dependent. Please follow the
instructions for fluorescence measurements as described by the instrument manufacturer.
To determine the dose-response for a given application, prepare a dilution series
of the GFP in phosphate buffered saline pH 7.3. An example is shown on the right.
