Dual-color analysis for monitoring Bid activation with DsRed2. HeLa cells were transiently cotransfected with plasmids encoding the fusion protein Bid-DsRed2 and a mitochondriatargeted ZsGreen1 (ZsGreen1-Mito). (A) Before induction of apoptosis, Bid-DsRed2 is localized in the cytosol and ZsGreen1-Mito labels the mitochondria. (B) After induction of apoptosis with 1 mM staurosporine for 3 h, the relocalization of Bid-DsRed2 to mitochondria as revealed by the colocalization with the mitochondria marker ZsGreen1-Mito.

Due to the high transparency of the body, the jellyfish can function as a magnifier lens when the mouth is fully open. The light organs, consisting of about 200 tiny granules, are distributed evenly along the edge of the umbrella, making a full circle. Soaking a specimen of the jellyfish in a dilute potassium chloride (KCl) solution in a darkroom causes the light organs to luminesce, exhibiting a ring of bright green light in the darkness (Fig. 1, bottom). If a specimen is soaked in distilled water, a green ring is first observed, which gradually changes into blue with the progress of the cytolysis of cells.
