Type_substrate Report for: Luciferin

(from wikipaedia) Luciferin (from the Latin lucifer, light-bearer) is a generic term for the light-emitting compound found in organisms that generate bioluminescence. Luciferins typically undergo an enzyme-catalyzed reaction with molecular oxygen. The resulting transformation, which usually involves splitting off a molecular fragment, produces an excited state intermediate that emits light upon decaying to its ground state.
