General description

Firefly luciferase is one of the most utilized reporter genes for the study of gene expression.[62] It is an extremely sensitive, rapid, and easy-to-use reporter gene. The chemiluminescent reaction catalyzed by luciferase is one of the most sensitive analytical tools for measuring gene expression. The luciferase substrate contains coenzyme A for increased and sustained luminescence compared to conventional methods.[71] This eliminates the need for automated luminometer injection of the substrate and allows analysis by photographic film or scintillation counting. The lysis buffer contains polymyxin B which further enhances the signal and eliminates lysozyme treatment and freeze-thawing of cells. Cell lysis buffer is compatible with β-galactosidase assays. The enzyme encoded by the luciferase reporter gene catalyzes the oxidation of D-luciferin in the presence of ATP, oxygen, and Mg2+. The fluorescent product is quantified to measure its activity.[71]
