Abstract—Radiationless energy transfer is known to play biologically important roles in both photosynthesis and bioluminescence. In photosynthesis, accessory pigments serve as “antennae”, transferring excitation energy into the “reaction centers”. In the bioluminescent coelenterates, energy is transferred from the site of reaction via an accessory protein known as the green‐fluorescent protein (GFP). Coelenterate bioluminescence systems such as that of the sea pansy, Renilla, are well… Expand
Protein-protein complexation in bioluminescence
TLDR
The most reliable structural model is available for the protein-protein complex of the Ca2+-regulated photoprotein clytin and green-fluorescent protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Clytia gregaria, solved by means of Xray crystallography, NMR mapping and molecular docking. Expand
[29] Protein-protein interactions as measured by bioluminescence energy transfer in Renilla
TLDR
The chapter presents experimental evidence for protein–protein interaction between luciferase and GFP in the Renilla system and describes how this interaction can be measured by the assay of in vitro energy transfer. Expand
Functional complementation of high-efficiency resonance energy transfer: a new tool for the study of protein binding interactions in living cells.
TLDR
A new functional complementation assay based on the detection of the high-efficiency BRET signal that is generated when the reporters Rluc and RGFP are brought into close proximity by a pair of interacting proteins to which they are linked is proposed. Expand
Detection of protein-protein interactions using Aequorea victoria bioluminescence resonance energy transfer
Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) is a naturally occurring phenomenon taking place in some marine coelenterates. Emission of light in these organisms involves the energy transferExpand
NMR-derived Topology of a GFP-photoprotein Energy Transfer Complex*
TLDR
A spatial structure of a complex of the Ca2+-regulated photoprotein clytin with its green-fluorescent protein (cgGFP) from the jellyfish Clytia gregaria is presented, and it is shown that it accounts for the bioluminescence properties of this system in vitro. Expand

TLDR
This demonstration indicated that GFP could be used as a marker of gene expression and protein localization in living and fixed tissues and variations with more intense fluorescence or alterations in the excitation and emission spectra have been produced. Expand

Similarities in the bioluminescence from the Pennatulacea.
TLDR
The data indicate that in each of these Pennatulids, the overall bioluminescence spectrum can be explained as the combination of two emitting species, the fluorescence of the green-fluorescent, protein-bound chromophore and the broad blue fluorescence typical of the in vitro reactions. Expand
