I just retruned from a Keystone Signaling meeting where Tony Hunter spoke
(Keystone X1/X2 1999) on April 13.  I think he used YFP and GFP to look at
FRET effect in a lving cell when receptors dimerize.  I will check my
notes for more detail.

  I thought this was an obscure fact until President Clinton mentioned it
            in his 19 JAN 99 State-of-the-Union address!
