Аннотация: The recombinant coelenterazine-dependent luciferases (isoforms MLuc 164 and MLuc39) from the marine copepod Metridia longa were expressed as inclusion bodies in E. coli cells, dissolved in 6 M guanidinium chloride and folded in conditions developed for proteins containing intramolecular disulfide bonds. One of them (MLuc09) was obtПоказать полностьюained in an active monomeric form with a high yield. The luciferase bioluminescence is found to be initiated not only by free coelenterazine, but also by Ca2+-dependent coelenterazine-binding protein (CBP) of Renilla muelleri on Ca2+ addition. The use of CBP as a "substrate" provides higher light emission and simultaneously the lower level of background. The high purity MLuc39 can be detected down to attomol with a linear range extending over 5 orders of magnitude. The MLuc39 reveals also a high stability towards heating and chemical modification; the chemically synthesized biotinylated derivatives of the luciferase preserve 35-40% of the initial activity The luciferase applicability as an in vitro bioluminescent reporter is demonstrated in model tandem bioluminescent solid-phase microassay combining the Ca2+-regulated photoprotein obelin and the Metridia luciferase.
