***********************

Is anyone aware of a GFP clone that:

1 - has plant-optimized DNA sequence
2 - has a emission wavelength shifted from the original green
and
3 - is available for research purposes

We would like to use GFP as a screenable marker for plant genetic
transformation but have encountered considerable background fluorescence at
the 'wildtype' GFP emission wavelength.  
You can reply to my email address (jvelten at mail.csrl.ars.usda.gov) and I will
post a synopsis of all responses.

Thanks in advance.

Jeff Velten
