Dimerizers allowing inducible control of protein-protein interactions are powerful tools for manipulating biological processes. Here we describe genetically encoded light-inducible protein-interaction modules based on Arabidopsis thaliana cryptochrome 2 and CIB1 that require no exogenous ligands and dimerize on blue-light exposure with subsecond time(More)

We describe a simple genetic test for assessing the competency of Gal4-based baits prior to a yeast two-hybrid screen, which allows determination of whether a bait protein is expressed appropriately for an interaction to be detected. The novel test, based on interaction with the protein RanBPM, is easier and more predictive than other methods such as(More)
