A palette of fluorescent proteins optimized for diverse cellular environments
To perform quantitative live cell imaging, investigators require fluorescent reporters that accurately report protein localization and levels, while minimally perturbing the cell. Yet, within theExpand

Assessing the Tendency of Fluorescent Proteins to Oligomerize Under Physiologic Conditions
Several fluorescent proteins (FPs) are prone to forming low‐affinity oligomers. This undesirable tendency is exacerbated when FPs are confined to membranes or when fused to naturally oligomericExpand

Fluorescent proteins in cellular organelles: serious pitfalls and some solutions.
Fluorescent proteins (FPs) have been powerful tools for cell biologists for over 15 years. The large variety of FPs available rarely comes with an instruction manual or a warning label. The potentialExpand

Large-scale, cross-flow based isolation of highly pure and endocytosis-competent extracellular vesicles
ABSTRACT Isolation of extracellular vesicles (EVs) from cell culture supernatant or plasma can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Common measures to quantify relative success are: concentration ofExpand

Engineering and exploitation of a fluorescent HIV-1 gp120 for live cell CD4 binding assays.
The HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein, gp120, binds the host cell receptor, CD4, in the initial step of HIV viral entry and infection. This process is an appealing target for the development of inhibitoryExpand

Alcohol disrupts endoplasmic reticulum function and protein secretion in hepatocytes.
BACKGROUND Many alcoholic patients have serum protein deficiency that contributes to their systemic problems. The unfolded protein response (UPR) is induced in response to disequilibrium in theExpand
