  • Abstract— Antibodies raised against luciferase purified from adult Photinus pyralis are shown to bind to luciferases from several species of the families Lampyridae and Elateridae. Based on their migration in denaturing gels, the enzymes from Pyrophorus plagiophthalamus are smaller and Photuris species larval enzyme is larger than the P. pvralis enzvme. All of the enzvmes examined are antieenicallv similar.
