GFP fusion protein not expressing!

Postby biology_06er » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:19 pm

Hi there,

I tried to make a GFP fusion protein (my gene of interest was fused to the C terminal of GFP) but no expression occured...I tested the expression of the two proteins alone and individually they worked but not when fused together..I tried a linker between the two..still no luck...could it just be that the fusion protein is somewhat toxic to the cell (doesn't seem likely aye..especially if the 2 alones are ok)

Try the other side of the protein or other tag. Sometimes it just doesn't work.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
