Bacteria are the most abundant bioluminescent organisms. These species of bacteria are known to emit a blue/green light for communication purposes provoked by the enzyme luciferase, regulated by the lux gene operon. Recently, the bacterial bioluminescence genes (lux genes) have been applied in molecular biology and in environmental biotechnology as genetic reporters and contaminant biosensors, respectively. Being Puerto Rico a tropical island, with diverse marine ecosystems, we sought to search… CONTINUE READING
