Check out two articles in Current Biology which will blow your mind!  Is
fluorescent emission at >600 nm red enough for you?

Elowitz MB, Surette MG, Wolf P-E, Stock J, Leibler S. (1997).
     Photoactivation turns green fluorescent protein red.
     Current Biology 7(10), 809-812.

also on pag R606-607, Kenneth E Sawin and Paul Nurse write about
"Photoacivation of green fluorescent protein".
