Native Photinus pyralis (firefly) Luciferase

Cat No.
NATE-0422
Description
Firefly luciferase is an enzyme that catalyzes production of light from luciferin in the presence of Mg2+-ATP and oxygen. The reaction of this enzyme with luciferin, ATP, and O2 results in the emission of light. Luciferase activity can be inhibited by general anesthetics including isoflurane and ketamine/medetomidine thereby affecting the sensitivity of bioluminescence imaging.

Applications
The reaction of this enzyme with luciferin, ATP, and O2 results in the emission of light. Luciferase can be used to detect trace amounts of ATP. Firefly luciferase is also one of the most commonly utilized reporter genes for the study of gene expression. The bioluminescent reaction catalyzed by luciferase is one of the most sensitive analytical tools for measuring gene expression. < or equal to one femtomole of ATP can be detected using 0.2 μg of luciferase. This enzyme has wide range of applications in biotechnology and development of biosensors. Luciferase can be used to detect trace amounts of ATP and is one of the most commonly utilized reporter genes for the study of gene expression. The bioluminescent reaction catalyzed by luciferase is one of the most sensitive analytical tools for measuring gene expression. < or equal to one femtomole of ATP can be detected using 0.2 μg of luciferase. This enzyme has been used in a study to identify the different characteristics of reporter genes in whole-cell bacterial sensors. Luciferase from Photinus pyralis has also been used in a study to develop a novel bioluminogenic assay for α-chymotrypsin.

Specificity
Two contaminant, ATP-consuming activities are assayed for in this product, ATPase and nucleoside diphosphokinase. These impurities are found to be < 5 nanomolar units/mg protein and < 20 nanomolar units/mg protein, respectively. Arsenate free. ATPase <5 nanomolar units/mg protein Nucleoside diphosphokinase <20 nanomolar units/mg protein > 98% (SDS-PAGE)
Unit Definition
One light unit produces a biometer peak height equivalent to 0.02 μCi of 14C in PPO/POPOP cocktail. Light units measured in 50 μl assay mixture containing 5 pmol ATP and 7.5 nmol luciferin in Tris-glycine buffer, pH 7.6, at 25°C.
