Glowing Proteins Illuminate Biological Structures and Functions
This poster has a completely black background and depicts how cells, gene expression and internal organ systems of animals can be illuminated using mutated genes that cause proteins to have a florescent glow. At the lower left side of the poster there is a white mouse with a pointer stick being used to draw attention to images that cascade in an arc from the upper left side of the poster to the bottom right in the follow sequence. Starting with a microscope view of block of yellow, red, orange and mostly green cells with the caption in white letters – ”Labeling and Tracking Cells”. The next image if of two neonate rodents that have a shadowy orange outline with solid orange extremities and its caption reads – “Recognizing Gene Expression”. Lastly, in a the lower right side of the poster are three bright green images of a zebra fish showing circulatory, digestive and nervous systems with the caption – “Mapping Organ Systems”. The subtitle is, “A Program Sponsored by The NIH Animal Care and Use Committee, 496-5424.” The OACU and the NIH logos are also shown.
