Depositor Comments

Clover is the brightest green fluorescent protein (GFP) characterized to date, with robust performance in protein fusions. Also, it is useful as a FRET donor to mRuby2 in a FRET pair that offers bright fluorescence, dynamic range, and photostability while limiting emissions overlap.
