"We evaluate the in vivo use of an optical imaging method to detect the vascular expression of green fluorescent protein (GFP) or red fluorescent protein (RFP), and to detect the simultaneous expression of GFP and RFP after transduction into arteries by a dual-promoter lentiviral vector driving their concurrent expression," investigators in the United States report.
"This method involves using a charge-coupled device camera to detect fluorescence, a fiber optic probe to transmit light, and optical filters to distinguish each marker. In animal models, these vectors are locally delivered to target...
