RelevanceLuciferase 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.

Performed under reducing conditions.
Observed band size: 65 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green – ab16466 observed at 65 kDa. Red - loading control, ab181602, observed at 37 kDa.
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using Licor blocking buffer before being incubated with ab16466 and ab181602 (loading control) overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed (ab216772) and Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed (ab216777) at a 1:10000 dilution for 1hr at room temperature and then imaged.
Flow cytometric analysis of HEK293 cells expressing Firefly Luciferase, staining Firefly Luciferase with ab16466.
Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde at room temperature for 20 min, rinsed twice with permeabilization buffer (PBS, 1% FBS, 0.1% saponin), and incubated with primary antibody. A FITC-conjugated anti mouse IgG was used as the secondary antibody.
