Paper Abstract

Fluorescence Photobleaching Recovery (FPR) has proven to be a versatile technique for assessing the transport phenomena of fluorescently tagged proteins. Effective diffusion coefficients are estimated by observing the rate of fluorescence recovery resulting from the influx of fluorophores into a volume rendered non-fluorescent by photobleaching. Diffusion coefficients may be determined through non-linear regression of a theoretical model' or by relating half times of recovery to calibration data2. Due to the lack of axial confinement inherent in confocal FPR, analyses are limited to two-dimensional systems. However, with the development of multiphoton microscopy, three-dimensional diffusion coefficients can now be determined with a spatial resolution of a few microns3.
