    Synonyms: DsRed, rDsRed, Discosoma sp. Red Fluorescent Protein, Red fluorescent protein drFP583
    Fluorescent proteins such as Discosoma Red Fluorescent Protein (DsRed) from sea anemone Discosoma sp. mushroom or green fluorescent protein (GFP) from Aequorea victoria jellyfish are widely used in research practice. Fusion RFP and GFP commonly serve as marker for gene expression and protein localization. As DsRed and GFP share only 19% identity, therefore, in general, anti-GFP antibodies do not recognize DsRed protein and vice versa. Structurally, Discosoma red fluorescent protein is similar to Aequorea green fluorescent protein in terms of its overall fold (a β-can) and chromophore-formation chemistry. However, Discosoma red fluorescent protein undergoes an additional step in the chromophore maturation and obligates tetrameric structure.
