Physiological change can be observed using real-time monitoring of reporter gene expression.
～biological live imaging～
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2008 was awarded jointly to Dr. Shimomura, Dr. Chalfie and Dr. Tsien "for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein, GFP".
GFP is such a convenient tool for bio-scientists that it opens the ways to watch biological processes real-time.
Recently, we can observe micro physiological change by time-laps imaging using various bioluminescence and fluorescence reporter gene,luciferase and GFP and so on. I am going to introduce some techniques of live-imaging and discuss the merit and demerit of them.
