Protein trap is one of the modern genetic techniques, based on introducing of green fluorescent protein (GFP) coding sequence into the genome. The modern research tools developed on a protein trap basis allow artificially altering the intracellular amount of hybrid RNAs or proteins. Here we give examples of various methods of using the protein traps — from the analysis of the specific genes expression and the subcellular localization of the inverstigated pro teins to the studies of interactions between different organism’s tissues or organs.
