A New Alternative To FRET
A team of scientists in Florida and China have found a longer molecular ruler. They have demonstrated that an optical technique called surface energy transfer (SET) can increase the distances that scientists can measure within or between proteins in a live cell (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI 10.1021/ja106360v).
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) is the dominant optical technique to . . .
