RFP (red fluorescent protein drFP583) has the protection role from the UV light and the conversion of suitable light for the microalgal symbionts in the coral reefs (1). The RFP proteins can be used in multicolor tagging experiments, avoiding natural cellular autofluorescence, and the resonance energy transfer-based experiments (2). The broad fluorescence emission spectrum peaks is at 583 nm (3).
