Intermolecular energy transfer in the bioluminescent system of Aequorea.
The jellyfish Aequoreci emits green light whereas the photoprotein aequorin extracted from the same organism emits blue light when Ca2+ is added. Because the photogenic cells contain a greenExpand

THE INFLUENCE OF HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE ON THE GROWTH AND VIABILITY OF TERRESTRIAL AND MARINE BACTERIA.
Although there is abundant evidence that a rich microflora exists at the bottom of the ocean, in deep oil well brines, and in other habitats characterized by high pressure (cf. ZoBell, 1946), noExpand

Peroxidized coelenterazine, the active group in the photoprotein aequorin.
The photoprotein aequorin emits light by an intramolecular reaction when Ca2+ is added under either aerobic or anaerobic conditions. Previously reported evidence has indicated two possibilities: (i)Expand

Chemical nature of bioluminescence systems in coelenterates.
Analysis of substances involved in light-emitting reactions among bioluminescent coelenterates has revealed a pronounced uniformity in the structural features of initial reactants, i.e., "luciferins"Expand
