D-Luciferin, potassium salt


Luciferins are a class of ATP-dependent substrates that are oxidized in the presence of the enzyme luciferase to produce oxyluciferin and energy in the form of light. Luciferin undergoes an enzyme-catalysed oxidation and the resulting unstable reaction intermediate emits light upon decaying to its ground state. This system is employed as a very useful reporter in plants, bacteria, and mammalian cells. Because chemiluminescent techniques are virtually background-free, this reporter gene system is ideal for detecting low-level gene expression.
