Organelle marker


Organelle marker

We are providing genetic resources for visualization of organelles such as mitochondria and nucleus. Each clone contains an organelle localization signal sequence fused with fluorescent proteins or epitope tags. Organelles can be detected by fluorescence or by detecting epitope tags with antibodies.
Of those, 12 species of organelles can be observed by Nano-lantern luminescent and fluorescent proteins developed by Drs. Okada and Takai of the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) and Nagai and their colleague of the Osaka University [Takai, A. et al., Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 112 (14): 4352-4356, 2015]. Nano-lantern is a brighter luminescent protein, consisting of luciferase and fluorescent protein. Three colors (yellow, cyan and orange) of Nano-lanterns are available for each localization signal.
