GFP dimerization

I know that GFP can dimerize at very high concentrations, like those
used in crystallization.  Does anyone know if GFP dimerizes at
physiolgical concentrations?

My real question is:
If dimerization occurs would the dimer fluoresce if one molecule was
functional and the other was not?

Any thoughts are welcome.
