mScarlet-H Sequence

mScarlet-H was derived from mScarlet with the following mutations: M164H

GenBank: APD76537
IPG: 129830966


Screening for a more photostable mScarlet variant yielded mScarlet-H, with a single amino acid substitution (M164H) causing a >2-fold improvement in photostability, albeit accompanied by a serious decrease in quantum yield and fluorescence lifetime.
