Abstract

Bioluminescence reaction by bacterial luciferase has been successfully controlled by a controlled-potential electrolysis using platinum-mesh electrode to regenerate the reduced form of flavin mononucleotide (FMNH 2), which is one of the substrates of the reaction. It was found that the regeneration of FMNH 2 is facilitated by the adsorbed hydrogen atoms formed on a platinum electrode surface in the presence of phosphate ions.
