Abstract
Two-photon excited fluorescence lifetime imaging (2P-FLIM) provides a more direct and precise approach to fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), which allows studying the dynamic behavior of protein-protein interactions in living cells. In this paper, we describe the combination of a Leica TCS SP2 laser scanning microscope and a time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) lifetime imaging module developed by Becker & Hickl for two-photon excited fluorescence lifetime imaging. This 2P-FLIM system was used for FRET study on the interaction of heat shock protein hsp27 with p38 MAP kinase in the single living cell. Results show that the reduction in donor (CFP) lifetime in the presence of acceptor (YFP) reveals interactions between the two proteins.
