The dependence of luciferase activity in the homogenate of leaves of transgenic tobacco plants with chimeric firefly luciferase gene on ATP concentration and temperature was studied. The optimum ATP concentration was between 0.625 mM and 2.5 mM. The activity rapidly decreased if the homogenate was kept in 25°C and is completely lost during 30 min.
