The green fluorescent protein (gfp) is a protein composed of 238 amino acid residues (269 kda) that exhibits bright green fluorescence when exposed to light in the blue to ultraviolet range although many other marine organisms have similar green fluorescent proteins, gfp traditionally refers to the protein first isolated from the jellyfish aequorea victoria. Gfp stands for green fluorescent protein potential of the green fluorescing protein have been made to the properties of the protein by mutations in.
Fluorescent proteins such as the “ green fluorescent protein ” (gfp) are popular tools in caenorhabditis elegans, because as genetically encoded markers they are easy to introduce furthermore, they can be used in a living animal without the need for extensive sample preparation, because c elegans is transparent and small enough so that entire animals can be imaged directly.
