Luciferases are enzymes responsible for bioluminescence. These enzymes catalyze the exergonic highly oxidation of substrates known as luciferins, that the energy is released as light with high efficiency. The firefly luciferase are the most known and used in the biotechnology field as ATP bioindicators reagents, biosensors, cell biomarkers, reporter genes, among other applications. In t...
Beetle luciferases are responsible for the production of different bioluminescence colors from green to red using the same firefly D-luciferin. Some luciferin analogues such as 6´amino-analogues can extend the range of bioluminescence colors. Among several beetle luciferases that have cloned and been studied, Phrixothrix hirtus (PxRE) railroadworm luciferase is still the only one that n...
