J. Am. Chem. Soc (2013) "Structural evidence for a two-regime photobleaching mechanism in a reversibly switchable fluorescent protein" Photobleaching, the irreversible photodestruction of a chromophore, severely limits the use of fluorescent proteins (FPs) in optical microscopy. Yet, the mechanisms that govern photobleaching remain poorly understood. In Reversibly Switchable Fluorescent Proteins (RSFPs), a class of FPs that can be repeatedly photoswitched between nonfluorescent and fluorescent states, photobleaching limits the achievable number of switching cycles, a process known as photofatigue. We investigated the photofatigue mechanisms in the protein IrisFP using combined X-ray crystall

We moved to the IBS2

We just moved to the brand new building of the IBS. The new institute is now settled inside the European Photon and Neutron (EPN) Science Campus, along with the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the Unit for Virus Host Interactions (UVHCI). The IBS building in itself is a five-floor HQE building equipped with all the facilities for crystallography, molecular and cell biology, NMR, optical and electron microscopies, mass spec...
