Dear All

I am trying to transfect COS-1 cells with a ds-red construct however  am
having some difficulty being able to visualise the fluorescence of the
fusion protein. Does anyone have any suggestions? My cells were quite
confluent when I transfected them so I thought this may be the trouble, but
also our fluoro lamp is a little dodgy, so I was hoping they may look
brighter under the confocal.

Has anyone tried double labelling with EGFP, are they relative in brightness?

I let the cells transfect for approx 60 hrs so I thought this should be
plenty of time??

Any suggestions would be great!
