Polyclonal anti-V5 (GKPIPNPLLGLDST) is designed to detect V5 tagged fusion proteins. The V5 epitope tag is derived from a small epitope (Pk) present on the P and V proteins of the paramyxovirus of simian virus 5 (SV5). The antibody recognizes the epitope tag fused to either the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins. This product is prepared by labeling high quality polyclonal rabbit anti-V5 IgG (H+L) with the far-red fluorescent dye CF™640R. CF™640R is a novel rhodamine-based dye spectrally similar to Cy®5 and Alexa Fluor® 647. CF™640R is much brighter than Cy®5 and at least as bright as Alexa Fluor® 647 when excited at 633 or 635 nm. However, the most important advantage of CF™640R is its exceptional photostability. CF™640R is far more photostable than the cyanine-based dyes Cy®5 and Alexa Fluor® 647. It is also more photostable than Atto 647N, a dye that has been extensively used in single molecule-based imaging. CF™640R is also extremely water-soluble and pH-insensitive. These properties make CF™640R ideally suited for demanding applications such as confocal microscopy. Please download the CF™640R dye flyer for more details.Compatible with the NucleoCounter® NC-3000™.
