We just bought the mammalian BFP expression vector pQBI50-BFP from Quantum
Biotechnologies (Laval, Quebec) which features F64L, Y66H, V163A, a CMV
promoter, neoR, and an Nhe I site just downstream from the ATG useful for
creating fusion proteins. We'll transfect it this week and let you know
how things go. I was attracted to the nice Nhe I site useful for fusing
gfp to the C-termius of cellular proteins. We bloody hope we can get it
working, 'cause our real aim is FRET.
