|Official Full Name||Luciferase|
|Background||Luciferase from the firefly has become one of the more widely used reporter proteins for the study of gene expression. Luciferase catalyzes a bioluminescent reaction which requires the substrate luciferin as well as Mg2+ and ATP. Mixing these reagents with the cell extract containing luciferase, results in a flash of light that decays rapidly. This light can be detected by a luminometer. The total light emission is proportional to the luciferase activity of the sample.|
|Synonyms||Luciferase; ec 188.8.131.52; Firefly; Luciferin 4 monooxygenase|
