NanoLuc (Nluc)is a novel engineered luciferase coupled with a novel coelenterazine analogue: Furimazine. When both are coupled, we obtain a much brighter luminescence than Fluc or Rluc and it is known to work exceptionally well as a reporter. NanoLuc is a 19.1 kDa enzyme which is an ATP independent luciferase providing a glow-type luminescence.
Thermal stable enzyme NanoLuc retains activity following 30 min incubation at 55 °C. Active over broad pH range NanoLuc is fully active between pH 7-9 and retains significant activity at pH 5-7. Monomeric enzyme NanoLuc facilitates use as transcriptional reporter or fusion partner.
