Application Note: Use of Red Firefly Luciferase to Monitor Infiltration of Nicotiana benthamiana for In Planta Bioluminescence
23 May 2014

Luciferase reporter systems have been used extensively within in planta studies, most notably to study changes in the expression of transgenes. In this study, bioluminescence imaging (BLI) was applied to visualize the infection of a transgenic organism expressing a red-shifted luciferase into the leaves of a host plant, Nicotiana benthamiana.
