It has been only seven years since the green fluorescent protein (GFP) of the jellyfish Aequorea victoria was first shown to retain its fluorescent properties when expressed in a wide variety of cells and organisms1,2. Because neither cell fixation nor disruption is required to detect GFP, it has catalyzed the rapid development of an astonishingly wide number of applications as a noninvasive marker in living cells3. It has proved useful as a simple reporter of gene expression, and GFP… CONTINUE READING
