Researchers interrogating cellular functions often leverage complementary assay technologies to confirm observations. Promega offers many choices, including bioluminescent reporters, fluorescence imaging capabilities, and now antibody-free protein blotting. Delivering all these assay modalities with a single reporter module, HiBiT-HaloTag, is a unique Promega capability. As demonstrated with the Autophagy LC3 HiBiT Reporter, this tandem reporter system allows researchers to perform plate reader assays, HiBiT protein blotting, and HaloTag imaging using a single reporter cell line. The versatile autophagy reporter provides a powerful tool for the quantitative study of the autophagy pathway, the identification of novel modulators of autophagic flux, and the efficient confirmation of mechanism of action. Use of the HiBiT-HaloTag module in other reporter constructs will provide significant opportunities to perform quantitative and conclusive biological studies with powerful, complementary assay technologies.
