Green Heart

These microscope images are of two green zebrafish composing the shape of a green heart. The green color in the top image results from the fluorescence of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) under the excitation of blue light. GFP is expressed in the fish driven by the Nodal-response element. The bottom image shows the zebrafish under white light.
