Using glowing yeast to keep food safe

Dioxins and dioxin-like chemicals (DLCs) are a problematic group of pollutants that come from both natural and man-made origins. They do not easily break down on their own, which means that once they are present in an

Assaying protein-protein interaction by the complementation of firefly luciferase catalytic steps

Protein – protein interaction (PPI) assay is a key technology for various fields from basic molecular biology to diagnosis and drug discovery. Previously, PPI assays based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET)

Non-destructive inspection of metabolic status in bacteria using luciferase reporter

Bacteria are able to utilize various carbon sources, and change the intracellular metabolic fluxes depending on the availability. Whereas much effort has been taken to understand the underlying mechanisms, most parts of them are still elusive and
