Protein Shaped Accessaries - GFP (2023)



Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP)という、オワンクラゲから発見・単離されたタンパク質の分子構造型ブローチです。 GFPはUVライトをあてると蛍光緑に光るのが特徴で、蛍光マーカーとして生化学研究の分野で広く使われています。 このタンパク質の特徴から着想を得て、LEDライトを内蔵し光るブローチを制作しました。

This is a protein molecular structure shaped brooch. the Protein is called Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), which was discovered and isolated from the jellyfish, Aequorea victoria. GFP is characterized by its fluorescent green glow when exposed to UV light, and is widely used as a fluorescent marker in biochemical research. Inspired by the characteristics of this protein, I created a brooch with a built-in LED light.

※you can turn on/off the LED by operating from the battery holder switch on the back side of the brooch.

※When the battery runs out, you can replace it from the battery holder.

Special Thanks
