Bacterial luciferase produced with rapid-screening baculovirus vectors is a sensitive reporter for infection of insect cells and larvae.


Bacterial luciferase, derived from a fusion of the luxA and luxB genes of Vibrio harveyi, has been expressed at very high levels in caterpillars and insect cells. The coding sequence for luciferase was inserted into vectors developed in our laboratory which were designed to expedite screening of recombinant virus. These vectors contained the beta… (More)
