mCherry, a widely used fluorescent protein, has become an indispensable tool in various areas of scientific research. Derived from the red fluorescent protein DsRed, mCherry emits bright red fluorescence when excited with green light, making it an excellent choice for fluorescence microscopy and live-cell imaging studies. Researchers commonly utilize mCherry as a reporter gene, allowing them to track and visualize specific proteins, organelles, or cellular structures in real-time within living cells and organisms. Its compatibility with other fluorescent proteins enables dual-labeling experiments and multiplexing, providing valuable insights into dynamic cellular processes and interactions. Additionally, mCherry’s stability and resistance to photobleaching enhance its utility for long-term imaging studies. Moreover, mCherry has been employed in various fields, including cell biology, molecular biology, neuroscience, and developmental biology, where its fluorescence serves as a powerful tool to investigate cellular behavior, protein localization, and gene expression patterns. As research methodologies continue to advance, mCherry’s versatility and reliability continue to contribute significantly to our understanding of complex biological phenomena and pave the way for new discoveries in the life sciences.


Immunofluorescent analysis of HEK293 cells stably transduced with a lentiviral vector expressing mCherry-HA construct (red) and stained with mouse mAb to mCherry, 6575, dilution 1:500 in green. The blue is Hoechst staining of nuclear DNA. The 6575 antibody reveals the mCherry protein expressed only in transduced cells which appear golden in color. Untransduced cells expressing no mCherry are not recognized by the 6575 antibody and so only their nuclei are visible.
Western blot analysis of HEK293 whole cell lysates using mouse mAb to mCherry, 6575, dilution 1:2,000, in green [1] protein standard, [2] HEK293, [3] HEK293 cells stably transduced with lenti-virus containing mCherry-HA construct, and [4] HEK293 cells transfected with mCherry-HAI construct. Major band at about 28kDa corresponds to mCherry protein. The band at 20kDa corresponds to cleaved form of mCherry protein.This antibody was made against a recombinant construct expressed in and purified from E. coli. The sequence is identical to that found in a series of widely used expression vectors.1 MVSKGEEDNM AIIKEFMRFK VHMEGSVNGH EFEIEGEGEG RPYEGTQTAK51 LKVTKGGPLP FAWDILSPQF MYGSKAYVKH PADIPDYLKL SFPEGFKWER101 VMNFEDGGVV TVTQDSSLQD GEFIYKVKLR GTNFPSDGPV MQKKTMGWEA151 SSERMYPEDG ALKGEIKQRL KLKDGGHYDA EVKTTYKAKK PVQLPGAYNV201 NIKLDITSHN EDYTIVEQYE RAEGRHSTGG MDELYKEpitope mapping of 6575 was performed using a nested set of 20 amino acid peptides covering the whole sequence and overlapping by 5 amino acids. The peptide highlighted above strongly inhibited binding of 6575 to mCherry, while the previous and following peptides had no effect suggesting that the central 10 amino acids, KLKDGGHYDA are a key component of antibody binding.
