  • Relevance
    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.

ab635 has not been tested for this purpose. A potential problem is that some fixation techniques destroy the epitopes to which the antibodies bind. I believe that this technique has been shown to work with a similar antibody but I do not have the refer...
