ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Renilla-luciferin 2-monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Renilla-type luciferase.
Reaction catalysed
Renilla luciferin + O(2) <=> oxidized Renilla luciferin + CO(2) + light
  • From the soft coral coelenterate Renilla reniformis.
  • The luciferin is bound to a luciferin-binding protein (BP-LH2).
  • The bioluminescent reaction between the luciferin complex, luciferase and oxygen is triggered by calcium ions.
  • In vivo, the excited state luciferin--luciferase complex undergoes the process of nonradiative energy transfer to an accessory protein, Renilla green fluorescent protein, which results in green bioluminescence.
  • In vitro, Renilla luciferase emits blue light in the absence of any green fluorescent protein.
