Overlapping entries



This superfamily represents the N-terminal domain of the luciferase (luciferin 4-monooxygenase) from Coleoptera (beetles). Luciferases (EC: are the enzymes that catalyse the reactions that produce light in bioluminescence. Firefly luciferase bioluminescence color can vary between yellow-green to red. Luciferase is commonly used as a reporter in biological research [PMID: 17355205].
