Dear Joachim Hogg,

We have expressed a membrane transporter, P-glycoprotein as a fusion 
protein to GFP.  The expression of Pgp was quantified (both in fluorescence 
microscopy and FACS) and the activity was quantified either by its effect 
on fluorescent substrates or by the activity of its substrates.  The 
results are in the following article:

Y. Chen and S. M. Simon. In situ biochemical demonstration that 
P-glycoprotein is a drug efflux pump with broad specificity. J.Cell Biol. 
148 (5):863-870, 2000.
