Caption: Green fluorescent protein. Molecular model of the structure of green fluorescent protein (GFP), a protein which is used in medical research. This protein is coded for by a gene which occurs naturally in the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. In research, a virus is used to introduce the gene into an animal's cell nuclei, which has the effect of making specific parts of the animal fluoresce. Using the same techniques, cancer cells may be marked to track their progress around the body, giving insight into the spread of malignant tumours. Research such as this is invaluable in cancer.
