The following references encompass a review of recent literature where the in vivo expression of eukaryotic and/or prokaryotic luciferases provide for sensitive reporters of cellular activity. The list is subdivided into prokaryotic and eukaryotic applications. We have included the uses of luciferases in elucidating the control of gene expression or for monitoring cell viability. We have not included papers cited by Stanley and Stewart (J Biolumin Chemilumin 1990; 5:141-52) nor have we included papers on the structure and regulation of luciferases as this now substantial literature will be the subject of a future review. References cited in both this review and previous ones are referred to by the number assigned to them in the earlier review.
