Mutant Fluorescent Proteins

Description:

 

Functional engineered fluorescent proteins with varied fluorescence characteristics that can be easily distinguished from currently existing green and blue fluorescent proteins. 

 

Such engineered fluorescent proteins enable the simultaneous measurement of two or more processes within cells and can be used as fluorescence energy donors or acceptors when used to monitor protein-protein interactions through FRET.  Longer-wavelength engineered fluorescent proteins are particularly useful for photodynamic toxicity, and auto-fluorescence of cells are significantly reduced at longer wavelengths.
