Bioluminescence For Cellular & Genetic Studies
Bioluminescence, the remarkable ability of certain marine organisms to emit light, has proven to be a transformative asset in the realm of medical research. Among the bioluminescent wonders of the sea, jellyfish and deep-sea fish stand out as key contributors. One of the most notable gifts from these organisms to science is the green fluorescent protein (GFP). Green fluorescent protein, originally isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, has become a fundamental tool in cellular and genetic studies.
