ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.99.21

Accepted Name
Latia-luciferin monooxygenase (demethylating).
Reaction catalysed
Latia luciferin + AH(2) + 2 O(2) <=> oxidized Latia luciferin + CO(2) + formate + A + H(2)O + light
Cofactor(s)
Flavoprotein.
Comment(s)
  • Latia luciferin is (E)-2-methyl-4-(2,6,6-trimethyl-1-cyclohex-1-yl)- 1-buten-1-ol formate.
  • The reaction possibly involves two enzymes, an oxygenase followed by a monooxygenase for the actual light-emitting step.
