Introducing mNeonGreen, The Brightest Monomeric Fluorescent Protein - 3/25/2013




We are proud to announce the publication and release of mNeonGreen, the brightest monomeric fluorescent protein to date, in the journal Nature Methods. In an article entitled, "A bright monomeric green fluorescent protein derived from Branchiostoma lanceolatum" we describe this unique protein's development and astounding properties.

In addition to being the brightest monomeric green or yellow fluorescent protein to date, mNeonGreen is also an excellent fusion tag for traditional imaging as well as stochastic single-molecule super resolution imaging. Lastly it is a stellar fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) acceptor for cyan fluorescent proteins.

We have also launched a new Superresolution Imaging Portal today with information on various Superresolution imaging techniques (PALM, STORM, SIM, STED), tools, and equipment. Our goal is to provide everyone with a convenient source containing all the information they need to harness the power of Superresolution Imaging.
