BIOPHOTON: A unit of light emitted from a living organism.
PHOTOPHORE: a light-emitting organ which appears as luminous spots. Includes organs that culture glowing bacteria, that encourage chemical reactions resulting in light, or a digesting organ whose food source glows.
PHOTOCYTE: a cell that specializes in catalyzing enzymes to produce light
LUCIFERASE: The Luciferins that generate bioluminescence AS A RESULT OF OXIDATION.
P. luminescens: A type of bacteria that glows. Nicknamed ‘Angels Glow’ back in the civil war, because it also produces antibiotics, and Soldiers whose wounds glowed blue had a higher survival rate.
A. fischeri: The most common bioluminescent bacteria to form symbiotic relationships with marine animals, in their Photophores. They are found free-floating in most oceans, in low quantities. (found in Hawaiian Bobtail Squid)
REFLECTINS: Proteins that allow a creature to regulate, intensify, and redirect the light coming from its Photophore.
