Conversion of red fluorescent protein into a bright blue probe" SUMMARY We used a red chromophore formation pathway, in which the anionic red chromophore is formed from the neutral blue intermediate, to suggest a rational design strategy to develop blue fluorescent proteins with a tyrosine-based chromophore. The strategy was applied to red fluorescent(More)
Major depression represents a complex mental disorder. The identification of biological markers that define subtypes of major depressive disorder would greatly facilitate appropriate medical treatments, as well as provide insight into etiology. Reduced activity of the cAMP signaling system has been implicated in the etiology of major depression. Previous(More)
INTRODUCTION Regulated neurotransmitter actions in the mammalian central nervous system determine brain function and control peripheral organs and behavior.

Herein, we(More)
