Green fluorescent protein (GFP) from jellyfish Aequorea victoria, the powerful genetically encoded tag presently available in a variety of mutants featuring blue to yellow emission, has found a red-emitting counterpart. The recently cloned red fluorescent protein DsRed, isolated from Discosoma corals (), with its emission maximum at 583 nm, appears to be the long awaited tool for multi-color applications in fluorescence-based biological research. Studying the emission dynamics of DsRed by… Expand
