Domain

Luciferase catalytic domain (IPR018804)

Short name: Luciferase_cat

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the catalytic domain of dinoflagellate luciferase. Luciferase is involved in catalysing the light emitting reaction in bioluminescence. The structure of this domain has been solved [PMID: 15665092]. The core part of the domain is a 10 stranded beta barrel that is structurally similar to lipocalins and FABP [PMID: 15665092].
