The bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) assay has emerged as one of the most popular methods for analysing protein-protein interactions (PPIs) in plant biology. This includes its increasing use as a tool for dissecting the molecular mechanisms of chloroplast function.

Abstract

The bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) assay has emerged as one of the most popular methods for analysing protein-protein interactions (PPIs) in plant biology. This includes its increasing use as a tool for dissecting the molecular mechanisms of chloroplast function. However, the construction of chloroplast fusion proteins for BiFC can be difficult, and the availability and selection of appropriate controls is not trivial. Furthermore, the challenges of performing BiFC in restricted cellular compartments has not been specifically addressed.
