Bacterial and Other "Luciferins"

Abstract

Fatty aldehydes found in luminous bacteria function in the same way as the luciferin of well-known "luciferin-luciferase" systems. The luciferins from three distinct types of luminescent organisms differ chemically from each other and from another type that is chemically identical among various types of organisms.
