The use of a GFP antibody for research applications in transgenic C. elegans, GFP tagged yeast and porcine model

GFP, or green fluorescent protein, is a chemiluminescent protein derived from Aequorea jellyfish that was first discovered by Osamu Shimomura.  It was soon after established that the emission spectra of GFP was right around 509nm, or the ultraviolet color range.  The GFP gene is often used to form expression constructs in order to closely follow protein behavior, cellular differentiation, protein localization and more.  The following articles employed a GFP antibody in conjunction with various other GFP construct techniques to strengthe

GFP - Be Green!

Green fluorescence protein (GFP) is a 27KD protein derived from the jellyfish Aquorea victoria that emits a green light (emission peak at a wavelength of 509 nm) when excited by blue light (excitation peak at a wavelength of 395 nm). GFP is a highly versatile protein that has become an invaluable tool in cell biology research because of its intrinsic fluorescence without substrate requirement, ability to be visualized over time durations - both short- and long-term - in living cells, and short sequence making it easy to clone and use an unobtrusive tag.
