Some of the most common and recognizable early evening fliers are male Photinus pyralis, which fly about a meter off the ground.
Of the available systems, the most commonly used is the luciferase from firefly (Photinus pyralis) [4] in combination with the substrate luciferin.
The luciferase protein (Photinus pyralis and Renilla reniformis) detection was performed using Dual-Luciferase[R] Reporter Assay System (Promega, WI, USA) in GloMax[R] 20/20 Single Tube Luminometer (Promega, WI, USA), according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Plasmid pGL3-Basic (pGLB) contains a modified coding region for firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase that has been optimized for monitoring transcriptional activity in transfected eukaryotic cells.
In addition to computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET), an in vivo noninvasive bioluminescent imaging (BLI) system has recently been developed using the adenosine triphosphate- (ATP-) dependent light-emitting reaction of the firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase and its substrate, D-luciferin [D-(-)-2-(6-hydroxy-2-benzothiazolyl) thiazone-4carboxylic acid] [11,12].

(2015) have developed a luciferase with higher activity and quantum yield by fusing the N-terminal domain of the Photinus pyralis luciferase joined to the C-terminal domain of the Luciola italica luciferase.
Renilla (Renilla reniformis) and firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase activities were assessed in cell lysates using the Dual-Luciferase Reporter Assay (Promega) and a Fluostar Optima luminometer.
