The RFP-Trap and GFP-Booster bioimaging tools have been released by ChromoTek. RFP-Trap is used to identify and pull down interaction partners of proteins tagged with red fluorescent protein (RFP), while the GFP-Booster restores or increases the green fluorescent protein (GFP) signal in superresolution microscopy applications. The red tool is suitable for biochemical and cell biological analysis of RFP-tagged fusion proteins in pull down assays frequently used for in vitro methods to determine physical interaction between two or more proteins. To study protein localization and dynamics in living cells, the GFP tool is suitable. It consists of a chemical fluorescent dye that covalently attaches to a GFP Nano-trap to provide high fluorescence intensities and signal-to-noise ratios.
