Skoltech scientists co-authored a paper in Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences

Dmitry Gorbachev and Konstantin Lukyanov from Skoltech have co-authored a paper “A General Mechanism of Green-to-Red Photoconversions of GFP” published in Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences journal. The researchers   studied the  processes of oxidative and reductive green-to-red photoconversion of the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and reveal a general “oxidative” mechanism of various green-to-red photoconversions of EGFP providing a link between oxidative redding and the photoconversion under low-oxygen conditions..
