mPapaya0.6 Sequence

mPapaya0.6 was derived from mPapaya0.3 with the following mutations: H3Q/Y127R/C149T/S166K
amino acid numbers relative to zFP538. show relative to mPapaya0.3



A drawback of mPapaya0.6 that soon became apparent was relatively poor photostability under typical live cell imaging conditions. Similar to mTFP0.7, photobleached mPapaya0.6 displayed a 410 nm absorbance peak attributable to the protonated state of the chromophore and was observed to recover fluorescence when stored in the dark
