41. H.W. Yeh, O. Karmach, A. Ji, D. Carter, M.M. Martins-Green, and H-w. Ai*, “Red-shifted luciferase-luciferin pairs for enhanced bioluminescence imaging”, Nature Methods, DOI:10.1038/nmeth.4400.

For those who are interested in our new luciferase-luciferin systems (teLuc/DTZ and Antares2/DTZ), please request the plasmids from Addgene. Since DTZ is currently not available from commercial sources, you may contact Dr. Ai for a small sample. If you need more for your project, you may either synthesize DTZ on your own, or turn to one of these CRO companies, or establish a formal collaboration with us.
