Entry
EC 1.13.12.6                Enzyme                                 

Name
Cypridina-luciferin 2-monooxygenase;
Cypridina-type luciferase;
luciferase (Cypridina luciferin);
Cypridina luciferase
Class

Acting on single donors with incorporation of molecular oxygen (oxygenases);
With incorporation of one atom of oxygen (internal monooxygenases or internal mixed-function oxidases)
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
Cypridina-luciferin:oxygen 2-oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
Reaction(IUBMB)
Cypridina luciferin + O2 = oxidized Cypridina luciferin + CO2 + hnu [RN:R04063]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
Cypridina luciferin [CPD:C02825];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
oxidized Cypridina luciferin [CPD:C03887];
CO2 [CPD:C00011];
hnu [CPD:C00205]
Comment
Cypridina is a bioluminescent crustacea. The luciferins (and presumably the luciferases, since they cross-react) of some luminous fish (e.g. Apogon, Parapriacanthus, Porichthys) are apparently similar. The enzyme may be assayed by measurement of light emission.
