"To create a better red monomer, we initially undertook a rational design approach, drawing on analysis of mCherry's enhanced photostability and mOrange's higher quantum yield relative to mRFP1. Six generations of directed evolution with constant photostability selection led to the novel variant “mApple,” which, though substantially brighter than mCherry, displayed complex photoswitching behavior"
