Route of Furimazine Administration Impacts Specificity of Bioluminescence Signal.
The resulting pH in the samples after the addition of acetic acid was <3, sufficient to activate the bioluminescence chemistry independent of up-stream physiological mechanisms (Hastings and Sweeney, 1957; Fogel and Hastings, 1972; Sweeney, 1986).
Bioluminescence imaging data from IVIS and weights of the nude mice were analyzed by repeated measurements.
(7) Microsoft Excel was applied to sort the data, and the figure was generated by setting time as the horizontal coordinate and setting signal intensity of bioluminescence as the vertical coordinate.
Bioluminescence can be considered a subtype of chemiluminescence, in which light emission arises from a chemical reaction [1, 10, 11].

ATTENBOROUGH'S LIFE THAT GLOWS BBC2, 9pm David Attenborough explores the world of bioluminescence, the often spectacular natural light produced by creatures including glow-worms, fireflies and plankton, using specially designed cameras, some fitted to a new generation of deep-sea submersibles and robots to record instances in the very deep ocean.
He explores bioluminescence - light created by living things like glow worms and luminous ocean plankton - describing this as a world 'utterly unlike our own'.
