Why were reporter systems developed? • Protein of interest: – No biochemical activity – No enzymatic activity – Hard to visualize – Lack of good antibodies – …. . • Companies: HT assays

2. Basic principles/requirements • Cheap, easy and fast (HT!!) • Reporter half-life • Reporter gene (activity) quantification and visualization: lum, fl, RA, color, WB, ELISA

• Reporter: – Reporter could be detected Reporter could be detected as such as such without without substrate substrate addition addition (e.g. fluorescent proteins) (e.g. fluorescent proteins) – Reporter = Reporter = enzyme enzyme : detected by substrate conversion : detected by substrate conversion
