Green fluorescent protein (GFP) and its relatives (GFP protein family) have been isolated from marine organisms such as jellyfish and corals that belong to the phylum Cnidaria (stinging aquatic invertebrates). They are intrinsically fluorescent proteins. In search of new members of the family of green fluorescent protein family, we identified a non-fluorescent chromoprotein from the Cnidopus japonicus species of sea anemone that possesses 45% sequence identity to dsRed (a red fluorescent… CONTINUE READING
