Cell Reporters

Reporters - In research settings, scientists often use tools called “reporters” to visualize and measure subjects of interest that would otherwise be invisible. For example, a ‘reporter gene’ is a gene that usually encodes a fluorescent or luminescent protein. This gene can be introduced to cells in such a manner that the fluorescent or luminescent protein are only produced under certain conditions of interest. 

A really cool use of a reporter recently was the creation of an entire salamander that expresses green fluorescent protein (GFP)! This GFP axolotol (a type of salamander) glows bright green under blue light. This reporter is being used to monitor how salamanders regenerate injured or missing limbs!
