  • 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.

  • Human HEK-293T cells transfected with GFP-tagged Firefly Luciferase stained with ab237252 (right). The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde and then permeabilized with 90% methanol. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS containing 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab237252 (right)) or Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 647 (ab199093 (left)) (1x106 in 100µl at 1/50 dilution (10 µg/ml)) for 30 min at 22°C.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 17 mW Red laser (633 nm) and 660/20 bandpass filter.

  • ab237252 staining Firefly Luciferase in HEK-293T cells transfected with Firefly Luciferase with a GFP tag. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab237252 at 1/100 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labeled with DAPI (shown in blue) and GFP is shown in green.

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
