General description

D-Luciferin is mainly produced in bioluminescent organisms. It has the ability to simply circulate across the blood testis barrier, blood brain barrier and the blood placenta barrier. This small molecule is sensitive to light and oxygen. It is also sensitive to moisture in its powder form.

Application

D-Luciferin has been used in the preparation of the reaction mixture for nitric oxide determination by minescence measurement. It has also been used in the preparation of D-luciferin stock solution for luciferin assays.
Substrate for firefly luciferase with a Km of approx 2 μM.
