Dear Olivier,

  Your best options are:

  EGFP from Clontech, max fluorescence at about 405 nm, still bright at 490


  mGFP/GFP5 from Haseloff. See:   K.R. Siemering, R. Golbik, R. Sever, J.
Haseloff (1996) Mutations that suppress the thermostability of green
fluorescent protein. Current Biology 6(12):1653-1663. (see article for

Good luck!


>Hi all!
