Advanced protein tagging using bioluminescence
The Scientist magazine has named the HiBiT Protein Tagging System, recently launched by Promega, as a 2017 Top 10 Innovation. HiBiT is a small 11 amino acid peptide tag that can be attached to any protein and detected using simple bioluminescent methods, allowing researchers to study tagged proteins down to endogenous expression levels.

MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Promega Corporation announced today that its HiBiT Protein Tagging System has been listed as a 2017 Top 10 Innovation by life science publication The Scientist. HiBiT is an 11 amino acid peptide tag that can be attached to any protein and detected using simple bioluminescent methods that are highly quantitative and extremely sensitive. The small HiBiT tag is easily combined with CRISPR/CAS9-meditated gene editing for precise insertion into the genome, allowing researchers to study proteins under physiologically relevant conditions.
