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...
Fluorescent proteins (FPs) have dramatically advanced life science research. Since their discovery they have become invaluable tools for imaging living systems and have been developed into precision instruments for measuring normally invisible events such as fluctuations in calcium ion...
Fluorescent protein (FP) technology is now an indispensible tool of biomedical research. Nevertheless, only a few members of the hundreds of existing FPs are generally regarded as the preferred options for most imaging applications. Accordingly, new FPs with ever-improved properties are in demand...
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...
Fluorescence microscopy is currently the most powerful imaging technique for interrogation of neural circuits. Accordingly, tremendous efforts have been invested in engineering fluorescent proteins (FPs) to act as indicators for various biochemical processes in neural circuits, resulting in a...
