Thermofluor Updates
A Google search for "thermofluor" and equivalent terms that describe the same biophysical method illustrate the continually expanding usage of thermofluor in the scientific community.
Equivalent thermofluor terms include:
- differential scanning fluorimetry (DSF - most popular)
- fluorescence thermal shift assay
- thermal shift assay

The number of Google hits on these terms oscillates wildly, but cumulative hits generally range in the multiple tens of thousands.

Numerous reports on applications of thermofluor methodology miss referencing the original paper describing the method by
Pantoliano et al., which is curious since many more include the original thermofluor cartoon illustrating the melting of a 4-alpha helical bundle protein.

A version of the thermofluor transition diagram, which has evolved over multiple presentations and publications.
