Luciferin

 In Uncategorised

Luciferins (from the Latin lucifer, “light-bringer”) are a class of light-emitting heterocyclic compounds found in organisms that cause bioluminescence. Luciferins typically undergo an enzyme-catalysed oxidation and the resulting unstable reaction intermediate emits light upon decaying to its ground state.
