Expression of the Renilla reniformis luciferase gene in mammalian cells.

Abstract

A cDNA encoding the Renilla reniformis luciferase was expressed in similan and murine cells in a transient and stable manner, respectively. Light emission catalyzed by luciferase was detected from transfected cells both in vitro and in vivo. This work establishes the Renilla luciferase gene as a new efficient marker of gene expression in mammalian cells.
