Receptor kinases are essential for the cellular perception of signals. The classical model for activation of the receptor kinase involves dimerization, induced by the binding of the ligand. The mechanisms by which plant receptors transduce signals across the cell surface are largely unknown but plant receptors seem to dimerize as well. In this chapter, we describe two fluorescence fluctuation techniques, fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy and photon counting histogram analysis, to study the oligomerization state of receptor kinases in living plant cells in a quantitative manner.
