Analysis of gene expression is most commonly assayed by transient transfection. Systems are generally based on the use of fusion genes which are inserted into cells, and the gene expression is assayed within 48 hours after introduction of DNA. Usually the fusion consists of the promoter binding site or enhancer sequence under study which is attached to a reporter gene. The amount of the reporter protein synthesized under the experimental conditions, is presumed to reflect the ability of the sequences studied to direct or promote transcription. Several enzymes are commonly used as reporter proteins, among them are chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (CAT), -galactosidase, human growth hormone (hGH) and luciferase. Luciferase has become one of the widely used reporter enzymes. The enzyme catalyzes a bioluminescent reaction which requires the substrate luciferin as well as Mg+2 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. The use of an antibody to detect luciferase can provide an alternative detection assay which directly detects luciferase protein levels, and thus has the advantage that it does not require luciferase activity and is not dependent on rapid kinetics. Moreover, antibodies can detect the luciferase enzyme expression in situ, providing a means to study the localized signal sequences using luciferase as a reporter gene. Reacts with Luciferase (Firefly) Protein. <

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
