FRET and FRET-FLIM microscopy imaging of localised protein interactions in living cell nucleus

08 July, 2003 by Dr Ammasi Periasamy*

FRET microscopy imaging is widely used to detect protein-protein interactions inside living cells. This application note describes the use of one and two-photon FRET and in characterising the dimerisation of C/EBPa protein


Metal ions may play a big role in how we sense smells
