Scientists have discovered a fluorescent protein that flouts trade-off relationships.

Scientific research institute RIKEN produced bright and photostable green fluorescent protein from Japanese jellyfish. Published in Nature Biotechnology.

Proteins that emit green light when illuminated are effective instruments for capturing images of intricate cell architecture. Such fluorescent proteins can be attached to target structures of interest, which light up when exposed to blue light.
