Correcting Confocal Acquisition to Optimize Imaging of Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer by Sensitized Emission

Imaging of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between suitable fluorophores is increasingly being used to study cellular processes with high spatiotemporal resolution. The genetically encoded Cyan (CFP) and Yellow (YFP) variants of Green Fluorescent Protein have become the most popular donor and acceptor pair in cell biology. FRET between these fluorophores can be imaged by …
