Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms and terrestrial invertebrates. Luciferin, the firefly substrate of luciferase, is a common reagent used throughout the biotechnology field. The injection of luciferin allows for the real-time, noninvasive monitoring of disease progression and/or drug efficacy in these model systems through Bioluminescence Imaging (BLI). Coelenterazine is a luminophore is the substrate for many luciferase enzymes, including Renilla reniformis, gaussia, and aequorins. It is commonly used to monitor reporter genes in BRET (Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer), ELISA and HTS methods. Gold Biotechnology’s luciferin and coelenterazine are Proven and Published™ to ensure a quality reagent with optimal potential.
