Latest Green fluorescent protein Stories
To track what they can't see, pilots look to the green glow of the radar screen.
University of Miami biology professor Akira Chiba is leading a multidisciplinary team to develop the first systematic survey of protein interactions within brain cells.
Many plants produce compounds that serve as a defense against predators or pathogens.
New fluorescent labeling technology that distinguishes in a single image the population size and spatial distribution of 15 different taxa has uncovered new taxon pairings that indicate unsuspected cooperation -- and standoffishness -- between members of the microbe biofilm that covers teeth.
Biologists have long known that organisms from bacteria to humans use the 24 hour cycle of light and darkness to set their biological clocks.
American Peptide Company recently began a collaboration with Sandia Biotech to synthesize peptides to be used in their Split Green Fluorescent Protein (sGFP) detection system. Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2011 American Peptide Company recently began a collaboration with Sandia Biotech to synthesize peptides to be used in their Split Green Fluorescent Protein (sGFP) detection system. The split GFP technology consists of a 16 amino acid fusion tag and a complementary protein to detect the...
The ability to tag proteins with a green fluorescent light to watch how they behave inside cells so revolutionized the understanding of protein biology that it earned the scientific teams who developed the technique Nobel Prizes in 2008.
Two researchers working for Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a laser from a single living cell, by engineering it to produce a light-emitting protein that was first obtained from glowing jellyfish.
In work published in the June 2011 issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine, Kolossov, Spring and their co-investigators - a multidisciplinary team within the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois - have transferred the concept of redox-sensitive Green Fluorescent Proteins (GFPs) to a quantitative FÃ¶rster resonance energy transfer (FRET) imaging platform.
Modifying a protein from a plant much favored by science, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and colleagues have created a new type of genetic tag visible under an electron microscope, illuminating life in never-before-seen detail.
The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a popular aquarium fish, where it is frequently sold under the trade name Zebra danio, and is also an important model organism. Characteristics The zebrafish arose in the Ganges region in Eastern India and is also native to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar. It commonly inhabits streams, canals, ditches, ponds and slow-moving to stagnant water bodies, including rice fields. The...
