You lost me on this message, can you tell us exactly how you are doing 
this?  Are you detecting the proteins with antibodies, in a double staining?

You may have a problem with quenching (this is NOT photobleaching) where 
the fluorophores interfer with each other in such cloAt 09:20 AM 6/8/2007,=20
