General description

The MISSION LightSwitch Luciferase Assay Reagent enables one-step reagent addition to measure luciferase reporter signal. The MISSION LightSwitch Luciferase Assay Reagent and the MISSION 3′UTR Lenti GoClone report constructs are a fully optimized reporter system that includes an improved reporter gene (RenSP), an optimized assay reagent, and a genome-wide collection of 3′UTR Lenti GoClone reporter constructs. The MISSION 3′UTR Lenti GoClone reporter constructs have been optimized for use with the MISSION LightSwitch Assay Reagent.


MISSION® LightSwitch Luciferase Assay Reagent has been used to measure actin promoter activity.

Here, we report a comprehensive investigation of changes in microRNA (miRNA) expression profiles on human keratinocyte (HK) differentiation in vitro and in vivo. We have monitored expression patterns of 377 miRNAs during calcium-induced differentiation of primary HKs, and have compared...

The miR-17-92 microRNA cluster is often activated in cancer cells, but the identity of its targets remains elusive. Using SILAC and quantitative mass spectrometry, we examined the effects of activation of the miR-17-92 cluster on global protein expression in neuroblastoma...

Genomic and full-length cDNA sequences provide opportunities for understanding human gene structure and transcriptional regulatory elements. The simplest regulatory elements to identify are promoters, as their positions are dictated by the location of transcription start sites. We aligned full-length cDNA...
