Part of IMAGING WEEK: Second Annual In Vivo Molecular Imaging, November 16-17, 2005
Fluorescent proteins can be used as reporters in drug discovery to track the activity of drugs and targets in the context of a living cell. Researchers can use fluorescent probes to attach to their protein of interest, and visualize the manipulation of targets, genes and proteins.
This exciting tool allows unprecedented insight into the machinery of cells, and is used for the prioritization of targets as well as monitoring the biological activity of compounds. It can also be instrumental in evaluating a range of subcellular changes, such as gene and protein
expression, protein or organelle trafficking, receptor biology, and signal transduction. This powerful technique for cellular imaging will positively impact your success rate in screening compounds against cancer, infectious disease, and regenerative medicine.
