Abstract

The unique properties of firefly luciferase and the cloning of the gene for this enzyme have spawned a number of novel applications of this protein. We summarize a few of these applications including its use as a reporter gene, as a model for the study of protein import into peroxisomes, and as a component of a heterologous gene expression system.
