Fluorescent proteins (FPs) are indispensible biochemical tools. The concerted efforts of protein engineers have produced FPs spanning the visible colour spectrum. This wide variety of FPs has greatly facilitated the development of FP-based biosensors. However, researchers rely on relatively few...
Fluorescent proteins (FP) and FP-based biosensors have become essential tools for cell biology and neuroscience research. This thesis describes efforts to engineer new FPs with red emission and novel genetically encoded biosensors based on red FPs. Directed evolution and semi-rational design are...
