General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Luciferase alpha and beta subunit fusion gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Vibrio harveyi - Vibrio, V. harveyi
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Luciferase alpha and beta subunit fusion Protein
Biological function
The luxA and luxB genes encoding the luciferase from Vibrio harveyi were fused by site-directed mutagenesis so that one polypeptide was encoded by the fused gene. The protein encodes a luciferase enzyme. This gene/protein is commonly used in biotechnology as reporters of gene expression.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • Selectable marker genes and reporter genes
