Dear Keitaro, 

If the GFPs from the different sources do not contain specific 
epitopes (like VSV, HA, myc and so on), the antibodies should detect 
all GFPs since there are only a few mutaions allowed that keep GFP 
fluorescent. If I remember correctly, you should find some 
information on the different GFPs (mainly S65T, F64L = EGFP and some 
alterations near the C terminus) on Clontech's website in the GFP 

If you have access to the genetic sequences of the GFPs (which might 
differ), you may compare the protein sequences and get some clues. 
One thing a manufacturer could do is raising the antibody against a 
region containing an adaptor sequence in a vector for fusion 

Good luck!
