Stanford University obtains United States patent.

Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) has patented methods and compositions for detecting molecular interactions, particularly protein-protein interactions. The invention allows detection of such interactions in living cells or in vitro. Detection of molecular interactions in living cells is not limited to the nuclear compartment, but can be accomplished in the cytoplasm, cell surface, organelles, or between these entities. In one embodiment, the method utilizes novel compositions comprising fusion proteins between the molecules of interest and two or more inactive, weakly-complementing .beta.-galactosidase mutants.
