Abstract:

Conclusions of the experiment are the following Luminescence and respiration in luminescent bacteria have different optimum temperatures. The optimum for oxygen consumption is at a higher temperature than the optimum for luminescence Luminescent reactions of bacteria, closely connected with metabolic processes, are specific reactions. Luminescence and respiration are two different processes Apparently, cytochromes do not participate in bacterial luminescence and The connection between the luminescent system of bacteria and respiration is realized through flavin enzymes.
