EVOLUTIONARY ROLES OF FLUORESCENT PROTEIN PIGMENTS OF REEF CORALS at Western Sydney University (WSU)

Posted: 2019-04-07

THE PROJECT

Fluorescence is a prominent trait of Great Barrier Reef corals, colouring their tissues with a variety of proteins of the GFP (green fluorescent protein) family. These proteins are some of the most widely known fluorescent markers used to identify gene and protein expression and dynamics.

Their function in marine organisms is still poorly understood although they are known to be important in light modulation of coral tissues to optimise photosynthesis of symbiotic microalgae. Furthermore, the expression of GFP-type protein genes varies across coral populations, life-history stages, and is strongly regulated in response to environmental perturbations, such as seawater warming.
