D-Luciferin, ethyl ester
Product ID: M0906
Membrane permeable analog of the primary substrate for the firefly luciferase light producing system with 30% higher light intensity.
|Alternative Names||Ethyl 4,5-dihydro-2[6-hydroxy-2-benzthiazolyl]-4-thiazole carboxylate|
|Storage Conditions||-20C, Desiccated|
|Notes||The esterification of the D-luciferin carboxyl group increases the uptake of the substrate by intact mammalian cells in live-cell luciferase assays.|
