Fluorescent Protein Literature References

Fluorescent protein development strategies are focused on fine-tuning the photophysical properties of blue to yellow variants derived from the Aequorea victoria jellyfish, as well as on the development of monomeric versions derived from other organisms that emit in the yellow-orange to far-red regions of the visible light spectrum. The latest efforts in jellyfish variants have resulted in new and improved monomeric probes for the blue, cyan, green, and yellow regions, while the relentless search for a bright monomeric and fast-maturing red fluorescent protein has yielded a host of excellent candidates spanning the longer wavelengths, though none are yet optimal for all applications. Photoactivatable fluorescent proteins are emerging as a powerful class of probes for intracellular dynamics and, unexpectedly, as a useful tool for the development of superresolution microscopy techniques.
