Production and emission of light by any living organisms is called bioluminescence. Bioluminescence comes from a range of reds, greens and blues caused by proteins and majorly studied bioluminescent often found in marine animals, mushrooms, insects, algae and specific types of bacteria. These
types of creatures are usually found in ocean habitats, in the season of monsoon, or in the surface of
As per researchers, bioluminescence can develop various new treatments to - understand the
damaged cells of Alzheimer patients, neurological diseases, detection of blood clots, track the spread
of HIV and fight Cancer.
Before bioluminescence helped H.I.V researchers to track the virus, the same type of work was
done with radioactive materials but the technique was expensive and hazardous. Luciferase - the enzyme that cause bioluminescence are more sensitive and amenable, it also requires fewer precautions
to use in labs.
Many people are yet to be aware that bioluminescence can treat these diseases in a much less hazardous and cost-effective way. So, this paper is going to help the common mass to know about bioluminescence, it's benefit, treatments it can do.
