You may consider using a secreted reporter protein such as Secreted
Alkaline Phosphatase (SEAP)--The intracellular half-life has not been
rigorously determined, but the protein is secreted from transfected cells
quite rapidly, as early as 4 hours posttransfection. A very sensitive
(10-13g) chemiluminescent assay for SEAP is also available--therefore,
detection is via a luminometer as with luciferase. Hope this helps. These
opinions are my own, and not necessarily those of my employer CLONTECH
