E2-Crimson fluorescent protein
Living Colors E2-Crimson is a bright far-red fluorescent protein that was designed for in vivo applications involving sensitive cells, such as primary cells and stem cells. E2-Crimson was derived from DsRed-Express2 and retains its rapid maturation (half-time of 26 minutes at 37°C), high photostability, high solubility, and low cytotoxicity (Strack et al. 2009).
