Abstract

Visualization of protein-protein interactions in vivo offers a powerful tool to resolve spatial and temporal aspects of cellular functions. The bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) makes use of nonfluorescent fragments of green fluorescent protein or its variants that are added as "tags" to target proteins under study. Only upon target protein interaction is a fluorescent protein complex assembled, and the site of interaction can be monitored by microscopy. In this chapter, we describe the method and tools for the use of BiFC in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and in mammalian cells.
