Fluorescent Proteins in New Colours

24 February 2017 – Researchers from Jülich and Dusseldorf have succeeded in taking an important step towards making LOV proteins more usable for future biotechnological applications. These glowing protein molecules regulate many light-dependent processes in plant and bacterial cells. They also have favourable properties for various light-based applications. This means they could serve as a new class of molecular markers to analyse cellular processes using fluorescence microscopy.
