Url: http://mmbr.asm.org/content/43/4/496.full.pdf+html
Creator: Hastings, J. Woodland (John Woodland), 1927-
Nealson, Kenneth H.
Publisher: Microbiological Reviews
Description: This Microbiological Reviews scholarly article (23-page PDF) presents an overview of data relevant to the ecology of bioluminescent bacteria and the functional importance of light emission. The review article discusses the biochemistry of bioluminescence, taxonomic relationships of luminous bacteria, control of the synthesis and activity of the luminescent system, habitats and distribution of luminous bacteria, functions of bioluminescence, and new perspectives. These perspectives and other specific postulates presented in the article provide new approaches for data collection and experimental work.
