Abstract: Molecular imaging has emerged as a powerful toot in basic, pre-clinical and clinical research for monitoring a variety of molecular and cellular processes in living organisms. Optical imaging techniques, mainly bioluminescence imaging, have extensively been used to study biological processes because of their exquisite sensitivity and high signal-to noise ratio. However, current applications have mainly been limited to small animals due to attenuation and scattering of light by tissues but efforts are ongoing to overcome these hurdles. Here, we focus on bioluminescence imaging by giving a brief overview of recent advances in instrumentation, current available reporter gene-reporter probe systems and applications such as cell trafficking, protein-protein interactions and imaging endogenous processes.
