Product Description

The green fluorescent protein (short: GFP) is a protein that exhibits bright green fluorescence. Although many other organisms living in the deep sea have similar green fluorescent proteins, GFP traditionally refers to the protein first isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria.


In cell and molecular biology, the GFP gene is frequently used as a reporter, it has been used to make biosensors, and many animals have been created that express GFP as a proof-of-concept that a gene can be expressed throughout a given organism.

 

The GFP gene can be introduced into organisms and maintained in their genome through breeding, injection with a viral vector, or cell transformation. To date, the GFP gene has been introduced and expressed in many Bacteria, Yeast and other Fungi, fish (such as zebrafish), plant, fly, and mammalian cells, including human. Martin Chalfie, Osamu Shimomura, and Roger Y. Tsien were awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry on 10 October 2008 for their discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein.

 

This 3D-printed GFP is gigantic in size, after printing it in the material "white strong flexible" I gave it its green color with a small can of water-based spray paint. Worked out super neatly and the result looks fabulous!
