Check out two articles in Current Biology which will blow your mind! Is
fluorescent emission at >600 nm red enough for you?
Elowitz MB, Surette MG, Wolf P-E, Stock J, Leibler S. (1997).
Photoactivation turns green fluorescent protein red.
Current Biology 7(10), 809-812.
also on pag R606-607, Kenneth E Sawin and Paul Nurse write about
"Photoacivation of green fluorescent protein".
