This chapter describes the use of microscope-based fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP). To quantify the dynamics of proteins within a subcellular compartment, we first outline the general aspects of FRAP experiments and then provide a detailed protocol of how to measure and analyse the most important parameters of FRAP experiments such as mobile fraction and half-time of recovery.
