Supercharged green fluorescent proteins as bimodal reporter genes for CEST MRI and optical imaging

Author affiliations

Abstract

Superpositively charged mutants of green fluorescent protein (GFP) demonstrated a dramatically improved chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) MRI contrast compared to their wild type counterparts. The mutants +36 GFP and +48 GFP were successfully expressed in mammalian cells and retained part of their fluorescence, making them a new potential bimodal reporter gene.
