How about injecting supercoiled reporter constructs into the
oocytes...e.g. lacZ and assaying them...
alternatively...use a luciferase construct...and see if the oocytes glow
in the dark (scintillation counter with attached single photon monitor
would be a good choice for using a whole vial of oocytes) upon addition of
Lucifierin (K+ salt) - 5mM ? correct me.
-BTW I am not only the luciferase president...i am also a client..-
