Reniformis) luciferase emits light in the blue part of the spectrum at 480 nm when reacts with coelenterazine h, while the Photynus pyralis FLuc is a yellow luciferase emitting at 560 nm. One of the first applications of BRET was to investigate the dimerization of cyanobacterial circadian clock proteins in bacterial culture. The pair donor-acceptor used back then eventually became one of the most used, Renilla reniformis luciferase (RLuc) as donor and GFP as acceptor. Optical imaging is already being used as intraoperative aid for surgeons aiming to remove regional lymph nodes or metastasis, both in breast and ovary cancer respectively, improving the clinical management of these tumours and therefore their prognosis.
