Prototype technologies of a bioluminescent signal system (BSS) based on the luminous bacterium Photobacterium phosphoreum and three enzymatic bioluminescence systems have been proposed for detecting and signalling the presence of toxicants in water systems. A number of pesticides, mostly known as poisonous substances, similar in their structures and(More)
The bioluminescent bacterial enzyme system NAD(P)H:FMN-oxidoreductase-luciferase has been used as a test system for ecological monitoring. One of the modes to quench bioluminescence is the interaction of xenobiotics with the enzymes, which inhibit their activity. The use of endogenous flavin fluorescence for investigation of the interactions of(More)
The coupled bioluminescent enzyme system luciferase-NADH:FMN-oxidoreductase was used as a biotest in ecological monitoring of the health resort salt lake Shira (South Siberia, Russia). The technique was adapted to saltwater conditions. Bioluminescence kinetic parameters sensitive to pollutants were determined. Conditions for the use of bacterial(More)
A review of the mechanisms of the exogenous redox compounds influence on the bacterial coupled enzyme system: NAD(P)H:FMN-oxidoreductase-luciferase has been done. A series of quinones has been used as model organic oxidants. The three mechanisms of the quinones' effects on bioluminescence were suggested: (1) inhibition of the NADH-dependent redox reactions;(More)
The influence of a series of quinones and phenols on bacteria bioluminescence systems was investigated. Three bioluminescence systems used in ecological monitoring were compared: (1) water-soluble; (2) immobilized in starch gel coupled enzyme systems: NADH:FMN-oxidoreductase-luciferase; (3) luminescent bacteria. Bioluminescence inhibition constants of(More)
