Green fluorescent protein (GFP) has emerged as a powerful new tool in a variety of organisms. An engineered sGFP(S65T) sequence containing optimized codons of highly expressed eukaryotic proteins has provided up to 100-fold brighter fluorescence signals than the original jellyfish GFP sequence in plant and mammalian cells. It would be useful to establish a non-invasive, quantitative detection system which is optimized for S65T-type GFP, one of the brightest chromophore mutants among the various… Expand

Specific accumulation of GFP in a non-acidic vacuolar compartment via a C-terminal propeptide-mediated sorting pathway.
TLDR
A vacuolar form of GFP was developed that was obtained by replacing the C-terminal endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-retention motif of mGFP5-ER by the vacUolar targeting peptide of tobacco chitinase A and was able to characterize the vacu polar compartment to which GFP is specifically targeted as non-acidic, since it did not accumulate neutral red while acidic vacuoles did not accumulating GFP.
