Abstract

The cDNAs encoding the genes of new proteins, homologous to the well-known Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) from the hydroid jellyfish Aequorea victoria, were cloned. Two green fluorescent proteins from one unidentified anthomedusa, a yellow fluorescent protein from Phialidium sp., and a nonfluorescent chromoprotein from another unidentified anthomedusa were characterized. Thus, a broad diversity of GFP-like proteins among the organisms of the class Hydrozoa in both spectral properties and primary structure was shown.
