Gene to Protein: Green Fluorescent Protein Necklace Kit (with voucher)

$75.30
(in stock)

Description

Use a simple purification process to isolate green fluorescent protein while developing a model for how genetic engineering is used to make recombinant proteins.

PE: HS-LS1-1
Related PE: HS-LS3-1
Time Requirement: 4 45-minute Class Periods

SEP: Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions
CCC: Structure and Function
DCI: LS1.A: Structure and Function

Illuminate the dark corners of your students' curiosity by teaching them about proteins. This simple classroom exercise enables students to isolate the green fluorescent protein (GFP) found in jellyfish, while teaching them about recombinant proteins and genetic engineering. After students isolate the GFP, they expose their samples to ultraviolet (UV) or blue LED light and watch them glow. Students then create necklaces with their glowing GFP and wear them proudly. With this beginner's activity, you can show your students that protein science can be approachable and engaging, but not overwhelming. Kit materials equip 32 students and include teacher's manual, student guide, digital resources, and a voucher to request perishable materials later at your convenience. Contact us or return voucher to request delivery of perishables.
