In the last 10 years, the green fluorescent protein GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein) from Aequorea victoria stułbiopława found numerous applications in cell biology and molecular biology. It is particularly suitable because of the stability of the tertiary structure and the fact that the chromophore is formed by autocatalytic cyclization of amino acids, for which participation is not required cofactors except any oxygen molecules. In this work, the most important structural and photochemical properties of the protein, as well as speeding the mutations discussed in protein folding and chromophore maturation, as well as changing the spectral properties of GFP.
