Method according GFP lifetime and rotational correlation time. In solution lifetime=2.9 ns and rotational correlation time (tc) 20 ns. In cytoplasm lifetime=2.6 ns and rotational correlation time (tc) 36+-3 ns
Comments GFP mutant S65T was purified from recombinant bacteria for solution studies, and expressed in CHO cell cytoplasm.
