The stability of the conjugated protein will be essentially the stability of the unconjugated protein. Some conjugated proteins might be stable when stored at -20°C and other conjugated proteins will have better solution stability at 2-8°C If the protein concentration is too low, this also has a negative effect upon the stability of the conjugated protein.
No. The product is considered suitable for research use only.
FITC can photo bleach fairly rapidly. The prepared solution should be stored in a dark container and protected from light. When viewing the antibody staining under a microscope, it is advisable to use subdued fluorescent light when possible. If the fluorescent light stays at one position for too long, photo bleaching is noticeable.
Yes; many articles have reported the pH dependence of the fluorescence of fluorescein derivatives. See the following references: Archives Biochem. Biophys., 133, 263 (1969); J.
