The fluorescent protein Midoriishi-Cyan gene was isolated from the stony coral Acropora sp.(Midori-ishi in Japanese).
CoralHue™ Midoriishi-Cyan 1 (MiCy1) absorbs light maximally at 472 nm and emits cyan light at 495 nm. It rapidly matures to form a bright dimeric complex. So it can be used to mark individual cells or to report gene expression without the problem of protein aggregation. CoralHue™ mMiCy1 is a monomeric version of MiCy1, and can be used to label proteins or subcellular structures. These fluorescent proteins are suitable as donor for fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) because of highly fluorescent quantum yield.
