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 transfected with mCherry-HA, construct, in red, and stained with rabbit pAb to mCherry, 2999, dilution 1:1,000, in green. The blue is Hoechst staining of nuclear DNA. 2999 antibody reveals mCherry protein expressed only in transfected cells which appear golden in color. Untransfected cells do not react with the antibody, as a result only their nuclei are visible.
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 and is identical to Uniprot entry D1MPT3.1 MVSKGEEDNM AIIKEFMRFK VHMEGSVNGH EFEIEGEGEG RPYEGTQTAK51 LKVTKGGPLP FAWDILSPQF MYGSKAYVKH PADIPDYLKL SFPEGFKWER101 VMNFEDGGVV TVTQDSSLQD GEFIYKVKLR GTNFPSDGPV MQKKTMGWEA151 SSERMYPEDG ALKGEIKQRL KLKDGGHYDA EVKTTYKAKK PVQLPGAYNV201 NIKLDITSHN EDYTIVEQYE RAEGRHSTGG MDELYKChromogenic immunostaining of formalin fixed paraffin embedded oxytocin-Tdtomato Cre mouse brain section with rabbit pAb to mCherry, 2999, dilution 1:5,000, detected with DAB (brown) using the Vector Elite 8718C-HRP detection and reagents with citra buffer retrieval. Hematoxylin (blue) was used as the counterstain. 2999 specifically detected the soma and axons of Cre activated neurons expressing Tdtomato. Our antibody recognizes tdTomato since it is very similar in primary sequence to mCherry. Mouse select image at left for larger view.
Western blot analysis of HEK293 cell lysates using rabbit pAb to mCherry, 2999, dilution 1:3,000, in green, and mouse mAb to GAPDH, 5157 dilution 1:2,000, in red: [1] protein standard, [2] HEK293 control cells, [3] HEK293 cells transfected with pCI-Neo-mod vector expressing two tdTomato protein domains, [4] HEK293 cells transfected with pCI-mod vector expressing one mCherry-HA protein domain, and [5] HEK293 cells transfected with pCI-Neo-mod vector expressing one GFP domain. The 2999 antibody recognizes tdTomato and mCherry proteins revealing major bands at about 60kDa and 30kDa, in green, respectfully, but does not recognize GFP. The red band at 37kDa corresponds to GAPDH protein here used as a loading control.
