Half life of EGFP - (Nov/10/2005 )


I wanted to ask if anyone knows how long EGFP is stable insinde the cell after expression in cell culture?!

Thanks Stardust


Hi Stardust,

I'm not sure, but it should be short. Because most the GFP-fusion protein isolated from overexpressed cells are degarded, even proteinase inhibitors were added in my case.
