  • Förster resonance energy transfer
  • fluorescence resonance energy transfer, which is a type of the Förster phenomenon where one or both of the partners in the energy transfer are fluorescent chromophores


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • DAC microscopy is an improvement on an older technology, called FRET, which can measure distances from 1-10 nanometres.

  • Dr Kong will use a state-of-the-art microscopy technique called FRET with the aim of validating this as a new prognostic tool to predict whether a patient is likely to benefit from Herceptin as well as identify patients who are likely to relapse.

  • AnaSpec has established a leading edge portfolio of integrated proteomics solutions such as FRET based assays and SensoLyte ™ assays for basic research, high-throughput screening and drug discovery. Press Releases

  • Researchers interested in molecular interactions have in some cases overcome this limitation by FRET-based imaging techniques in which fluorescence signals are modified by nanometer proximity between donor and acceptor fluorescent molecules Roy et al., 2008.

  • Cerulean is at least 2-fold brighter than enhanced cyan fluorescent protein and has been demonstrated to significantly increase the signal-to-noise ratio when coupled with yellow-emitting fluorescent proteins, such as Venus (see Figure 4), in FRET investigations.

  • This is a particular concern when conducting FRET experiments, which can yield complex data sets that are easily compromised by dimerization artifacts.
