AnaSpec Offers Antibodies Against the Hexa-His and GFP Tags

San Jose, CA, February 03, 2012 --( The introduction of tags, whether short peptides (6X-His, DYKDDDDK, c-myc) or proteins (green fluorescent protein – GFP, glutathione-s-transferase – GST) into recombinant proteins aids in the characterization, localization or purification of the recombinant expressed protein.1-3 As a consequence, antibodies raised against fusion tags are useful in biochemical or immunohistochemistry applications.

AnaSpec, EGT Group is pleased to offer a wide selection of high quality monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against the hexa-His and GFP tags.

Fluorescently labeled and biotin labeled 6X-His antibodies are also available. Antibodies are labeled with a selection of dyes, including their proprietary HiLyte Fluor™ dyes, which span the visible spectrum. This gives researchers a wide range of wavelength choices for use in immunohistochemistry or immunofluorescence applications.
