NanoLuc™: A Smaller, Brighter and More Versatile Luciferase Reporter

Brock received his Ph.D. from the Dept. of Biochemistry and received his B.S. in the Dept. of Chemical and Biological Engineering both at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Brock has been working at Promega for 7 years. Within his time at Promega he has been a group leader in the development of GloSensor Technology. Over the last two years, his group has helped develop and bring NanoLuc Luciferase to market.

NanoLuc™ (Nluc) is an ATP-independent luciferase that utilizes a novel substrate, furimazine, to produce high intensity, glow-type luminescence. The enzyme, evolved from a deep-sea shrimp, is much brighter than firefly luciferase (FLuc) and provides superior sensitivity as a genetic reporter. It exhibits greater physical stability, which reduces compound interference in highthroughput screening (HTS). NanoLuc™ may be configured for intracellular or secreted reporter formats, and being less than 1/3 the size of FLuc, it is well suited for experiments requiring small reporters (e.g., viral genomes, protein fusions, etc.).
