GFP has been used widely as a reporter protein for gene expression in eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms, and as a protein tag in cell culture and in multicellular organisms. The photoprotein used in Aequorea Victoria is called Aequorin. Ceci est dû au fait que la bioluminescence va exciter la GFP, qui a son tour va émettre de la lumière, venant s'additionner à celle produite par la luciférase (Ward & Cormier 1979). south into California.
