ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Bacterial luciferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Aldehyde monooxygenase.
Alkanal monooxygenase (FMN-linked).
Reaction catalysed
A long-chain aldehyde + FMNH(2) + O(2) <=> a long-chain fatty acid + FMN + H(2)O + light
  • The reaction sequence starts with the incorporation of a molecule of oxygen into reduced FMN bound to the enzyme, forming luciferase peroxyflavin.
  • The peroxyflavin interacts with an aliphatic long-chain aldehyde, producing a highly fluorescent species believed to be luciferase hydroxyflavin.
  • The enzyme is highly specific for reduced FMN and for long-chain aliphatic aldehydes with eight carbons or more.
  • The highest efficiency is achieved with tetradecanal.
  • Cf. EC
