FRET imaging of MLH1 and PMS2 interaction in live HEK293T cells. Images of CFP-tagged (green) and YFP-tagged (red) constructs when transiently expressed in HEK293T cells. Co-localization of co-expressed constructs is shown as yellow in overlay images. The pseudocoloured images represent FRET signals corrected for any bleed-through using the micro-FRET method (FRETc). A: Co-localization (overlay) and direct interactions (FRETc) between MLH1-CFP + PMS2 (wt)-YFP were detected in the nucleus. B: Cells co-expressing MLH1-CFP + PMS2 S775N-YFP showed good co-localization of fluorescent signals but little detectable FRETc signal in the nucleus.
