pFA6A-GFP-ura4MX6 Plasmid

The pFA6A-GFP-ura4MX6 plasmid is used to perform genomic GFP-tagging to express a C-terminally GFP-fused protein in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.


  • A shuttle plasmid that can be propagated in E. coli and S. pombe
  • Useful to facilitate imaging analyses of proteins

Schizosaccharomyces pombe, also called "fission yeast", is a species of yeast used in traditional brewing and as a model organism in molecular and cell biology. Green fluorescent protein (GFP), a 27 kDa protein derived from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, emits green light (emission peak at a wavelength of 509 nm) when excited byblue light (excitation peak at a wavelength of 395 nm). Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) has become an invaluable tool in cell biology research, since its intrinsic fluorescence can be visualized in living cells.
