Fluorescent Proteins Illuminate Cell Biology

Nature Reviews poster for free download

The discovery that green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria could be used to label proteins in cells led to a revolution in our ability to track proteins in live cells and whole organisms. A bewildering range of fluorescent proteins and sensors are now available that span the fluorescent spectrum, and together these provide the opportunity to dissect cell biological processes with exquisite spatiotemporal resolution.

This poster provides a user's guide to the key properties of fluorescent proteins and sensors, and the cell biological questions to which they can be applied.
