bioluminescence imaging


Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

bioluminescence imaging

A noninvasive imaging modality which is widely used in pre-clinical oncology research in a range of activities—e.g., imaging animal tumour models by luciferase-expressing cells after administering a substrate, drug development, gene monitoring, evaluating tumour development, metastasis and protein interactions.

In the present study, we established the gastric ascites tumor model in nude mice of NUGC-4-Luc cell lines and performed in vivo bioluminescence imaging. Using in vivo imaging techniques to explore the mechanism of growth and metastasis of gastric ascites tumors and the development of anticancer drugs, we provided a stable and reliable, intuitive, convenient, and sensitive animal model.
