Can anybody out there tell me if luciferase can be detected in vivo in
mammalian cells or tissues? In cells this would be as a screen for
expression and so would have to be non lethal as we want to pick the
expressing cells and grow them up.

Please post replies to me directly as my news reader is slow and unreliable.

Thanks in advance,
