green fluorescent protein

Abbreviation: GFP
A protein derived from a species of jelly fish, that fluoresces when exposed to ultra violet light. Its encoding gene has been isolated and is replacing GUS as a reporter gene in plant transgenesis, since it can be assayed non-destructively in real time.
