meffRed, red chromoprotein (incl RBS)
This chromoprotein from the coral Montipora efflorescens, meffRed, naturally exhibits color when expressed. Compared to many other chromoproteins, such as amilCP (BBa_K592009), amilGFP (BBa_K592010), spisPink (BBa_K1033932), asPink (BBa_K1033933) and aeBlue (BBa_K864401), the color development is slower. The color is readily observed in both LB or on agar plates after 24-64 hours of incubation.
