Hi All,

I am doing flow cytometry on a Becktin-Dickinson FACStar and am 
looking at a GFP-fusion protein located in mitochondria. I extract 
the mt by standard protocol but then do not get very good 
fluorescence on the FACS machine. Does anyone have any suggestions ? 
Also, what is the PMT values likely to be in FL-1 (FITC channel) to 
view the GFP-fusion protein ? I am using HepG2 cells and generally 
transfect 1x60mm plate of cells.

Looking forward to a reply.
