Wolfgang's reply raises an interesting and very important question which
could be discussed here:  Which influence has FRET-induced reduction of
donor fluorescence on the results of double labeling immunofluorescence
microscopy in general?  Could it be, that other dye systems as well (such as
FITC/TMR etc.) often don't show us the real colocalizers - due to quenching?
Has anybody ever systematically investigated this problem - i.e. by
comparing the results of green/red vs. blue/red dye pairs?
