fluorochromes and x-rays

From:John Baker

One of our post-docs here has two questions concerning fluorochromes 
and x-rays. They are:

1.  How, if at all, do x-rays affect fluorochome labels?
2.  What is the mechanism that causes fluorochromes to lose their 
excitability when exposed to normal spectrum light?

Thanks in advance,  John
