Background: GFP

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a 27 kDa protein originally isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. In the presence of UV light (490-520 nm), it emits a green fluorescent color that can be used to pinpoint locations of various intracellular proteins. GFP is 238 amino acids (aa) in length. It is a globular monomer that has a tendency to dimerize. The monomer has the shape of a beta -barrel with a chromophore (aa 65-67) containing alpha -helix running up its center. GFPuv is the Aequorea sequence with three aa substitutions; Phe to Ser at # 99, Met to Thr at # 153, and Val to Ala at # 163. This form expresses faster and is 18-fold brighter than native GFP; excitation peaks at 395 nm and emission at 508 nm.
