Comparison of earthworms’ bioluminescent systems

Cover Page

Abstract


The results of a comparative study of the luciferin-luciferase systems of seven species of bioluminescing oligochaetes - Henlea petushkovi, Henlea rodionovae, Fridericia heliota (Enchytraeidae), Microscolex phosphoreus (Acanthodrilidae), Pontodrilus litoralis (Megascolecidae), Eisenia lucens, and Avelona ligra (Lumbricidae) - are presented.
