See transgenic mice produced by introducing the gene encoding green fluorescent protein (GFP) under the control of a mouse actin promoter. These mice express GFP in all tissues where actin is normally expressed and glow green when exposed to blue or UV light, making them useful for studies of cell fate in cell transplantation experiments. Notice how not all pups in this litter are expressing the transgene. Credit: Masaru Okabe, Osaka University, Japan
