The enzymology and molecular biology of the Ca2+-activated photoprotein, aequorin.


Aequorin is a bioluminescent protein, isolated from the hydromedusan Aequorea victoria. A recombinant cDNA plasmid (pAEQ1) was shown to encode apoaequorin by detecting photoprotein activity in an extract of an E. coli strain containing pAEQ1 (Prasher et al., 1986, Biochem. Biophys. Res. Comm. 126, 1259-1268). The nucleotide sequence of the pAEQ1 insert has… (More)
