Caption

Reversibly switchable fluorescent protein, molecular model. Reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) are proteins that can be repeatedly converted between a fluorescent and a non-fluorescent state by shining the right sort of light on them. This RSFP, named Dronpa, is controlled using blue light to switch it from a fluorescent state into a non-fluorescent state. The reverse action is carried out with ultraviolet (UV) light. This protein is a single polymer with four chains (each coloured differently). This example is from an Echinophyllia coral.
