'Green Lantern' type sensor tailored to track heme

'Green Lantern' type sensor tailored to track heme

Graphic rendering of a ratiometric sensor (upper right pair). It is a combination of a bacterial protein (depicted red) that attracts heme and a fluorescent protein (depicted yellow). They could be analogous to a person holding a lamp while attracting hemes to block it's light. Lower left protein is an "internal standard" fluorescent protein, a type of experimental control.
