This unit on GFP provides clear, detailed, easy-to-follow directions for successful transduction of GFP into appropriate cell lines, as well as carefully detailed strategy and trouble-shooting sections. Instructions for sorting and purification of sucessfully transduced cells and for analysis and re-analysis of cells together with sample data are all included. The discussion provides data on multiple GFP mutants and lists relevant sources and suggested reading material.
