Was Fran Lebowitz a photographer?

We both wanted to write and probably thought it was the only thing we could do. Now, I’m a photographer. Fran says writers want to kill photographers, because what we do is so much easier. I understand this.

What is SunTag and how does it work?

Named for the “stellar explosion SUperNova,” SunTag can help you turn up the brightness in your fluorescent imaging experiments. One of the easiest ways to track a given protein is to fuse it to a fluorescent protein. You can then study where the protein is localized, and how its localization and expression may change across various conditions.

Why does SunTag have a higher signal to noise ratio?

The high SunTag signal allowed them to cut their laser power by over 80% and still obtain a higher signal-to-noise ratio with a lower photobleaching rate. Given the power of SunTag, they attempted single-molecule imaging deep inside the cell, in the nucleus and cytoplasm.

What is the difference between SunTag GFP and CAAX-SunTag?

In SunTag nomenclature throughout the rest of this blog post, GFP refers to sfGFP-GB1. Tanenbaum et al. examined the power of SunTag for single molecule imaging, finding that plasma membrane-targeted CAAX-SunTag was 18-fold brighter than sfGFP!

How are fluorescent proteins fused to SunTag scaffolds?

Instead of directly fusing a fluorescent protein to your protein of interest, you instead fuse it to the synthetic SunTag scaffold. This scaffold contains 10-24 copies of the short epitope GCN4. GCN4 recruits GFP fused to the cognate scFV antibody, which is expressed from a separate plasmid.
