EDINBURGH, Scotland, May 26, 2011 — Holoxica, a company spun out from the University of Edinburgh, has made the first medical imaging hologram of a green fluorescent protein (GFP) structure, allowing scientists to visualize the structure without any glasses or other visual aids. This is expected to help biologists and chemists whose understanding of molecular properties depends on appreciating their 3-D structures. GFP is used to tag other proteins to make them glow luminously, allowing scientists to watch their movements and interactions with other cells. The protein originally was isolated from bioluminescent jellyfish...Read full article
