Sorry, no etymologies found.
However, this derivative exhibits significantly reduced fluorescence emission compared to the native protein and photobleaches very quickly, rendering it much less useful then monomeric green and yellow fluorescent proteins.
In addition, EYFP has also been demonstrated to be sensitive to chloride ions and photobleaches much more readily than the green fluorescent proteins.
