Latest Green fluorescent protein Stories
Model is expected to help researchers better understand social bonding and impairments to such behavior.
Charting femtosecond energy flow could aid redesign of molecules to improve light capture.
A team of Harvard chemists led by X. Sunney Xie has developed a new microscopic technique for seeing, in color, molecules with undetectable fluorescence.
Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have discovered a family of green fluorescent proteins (GFPs) in a primitive sea animal, along with new clues about the role of the proteins that has nothing to do with their famous glow.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego â€“ led by 2008 Nobel-Prize winner Roger Tsien, PhD â€“ have shown that bacterial proteins called phytochromes can be engineered into infrared-fluorescent proteins (IFPs).
A crucial tool in the evolution of scientific capability in bioscience, the fluorescence microscope has allowed a generation of scientists to study the properties of proteins inside cells.
Biologists at the University of Pennsylvania have revealed a hidden code that determines the expression level of a gene, providing a way to distinguish efficient genes from inefficient ones.
Many longtime sailors have been mesmerized by the dazzling displays of green light often seen below the ocean surface in tropical seas. Now researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have uncovered key clues about the bioluminescent worms that produce the green glow and the biological mechanisms behind their light production.
Remarkable new tools that spotlight individual cellular molecules are transforming biomedical research.
Imagine having GeneVision: the uncanny ability to view the activity of any chosen gene in real time through a specially modified camera.With GeneVision, military commanders could compare gene expression in victorious and defeated troops. Retailers could track genes related to craving as shoppers moved about a store. "The Bachelor" would enjoy yet one more secret advantage over his love-struck dates.Frightening? Perhaps. Ethically suspect? Certainly. Preposterous? Not quite.A new study in BMC...
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...
