aeBlue blue chromoprotein

aeBlue is a blue chromoprotein extracted from the basal disk of a beadlet anemone Actinia equina. The protein has an absorption maximum at 597nm and a deep blue colour. The protein aeBlue has significant sequence homologies with proteins in the GFP family.


Important: This part is not available in the registry yet, however, the same part is available from the registry with the standard RBS B0034: BBa_K1033929.

The protein was first extracted and characterized by Shkrob et. al. 2005 under the name aeCP597. This version is codon optimized for E coli by Bioneer Corp.
