    An overview is given on the synthesis and characterization of a protein nanobiosensor produced by gene-level fusion of an elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) with green fluorescent protein (GFP) and its blue mutant (BFP). The sensor is generally encodable, and can thus be expressed within living cells as an in vivo molecular sensor.
