When light hits a fluorophore molecule, it is absorbed and emitted with less energy to produce fluorescence. The emission intensity is a measure of fluorophore concentration. Alternatively, light absorption by a fluorophore can occur close to an appropriate acceptor that receives it and emits a photon (fluorescence resonance energy transfer or FRET). Proximity between fluorophores measured by FRET precisely reflects binding of soluble and membrane-bound molecules.1
