MOVING COLORS: Bodipy-labeled lipid analogues can change their photophysical properties and/or localization in the membrane upon light illumination. These changes are highly influenced by the lipid environment. This phenomenon can lead to lipid-environment-specific false positive signals in experimental techniques where spectral identity/separation is important.
