Thegreen fluorescent protein(GFP) is aproteincomposed of 238amino acidresiduesthat exhibits bright greenfluorescencewhen exposed to light in the blue toultravioletrange.Although many other marine organisms have similar green fluorescent proteins, GFP traditionally refers to the protein first isolated from thejellyfishAequorea victoria.

There exists a jelly fish(Zoological name Aequorea victoria) that causes glowing light around its margin due to the secretion of this protein called Green Fluorescent Protein(GFP).

Bioluminescence is caused by accepting energy from aequorin and re-emitting light. The series of 238 amino acids produced by GFP is very stable with pH stability ranging from 5.5 to 12 and creates intense fluorescence.
