Photochemistry and photobiologyPhotochem PhotobiolCloning and Characterization of Luciferase from the Chinese Firefly Lamprigera yunnana.1186-119410.1111/php.13109Lamprigera (Lampyridae) is a small genus with only 17 species distributing in Asian countries. Its larviform females and alate males can produce continuously strong yellow-green light at night. However, no luciferase gene was reported for this genus and its subfamily-level phylogenetic position still remains uncertain. Here, we cloned the luciferase gene from one Chinese species, Lamprigera yunnana, by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). This luciferase includes 551 deduced amino acids (AA) with the sequence identity of 71.8-76.8%, 67.5-70.7%, 68.4-75.3%, 77.8% and 59.5% to those from Lampyrinae, Luciolinae, Ototretinae, Cyphonocerinae and Photurinae, respectively. Phylogenetic analyses of deduced AA of luciferases suggest that Lamprigera locates outside Lampyrinae, in which it was originally placed in traditional taxonomy. The luciferase was produced in vitro as recombinant protein, and its biochemical properties were characterized. It possesses significant luminescence activity at pH 7.8, and its KM for D-luciferin and ATP are 61 ?m and 122 ?m, respectively. It shows the highest activity at 37°C and is completely inactivated at 55°C. It is pH-sensitive with the maximum emission spectrum of 566 nm at pH 7.8. Our data provide new insights into Lamprigera luciferase and its phylogenetic position.© 2019 American Society for Photobiology.LiuGui-ChunGCCenter for Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Key Laboratory for Space Bioscience & Biotechnology, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China.State Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.ZhangRuRCenter for Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Key Laboratory for Space Bioscience & Biotechnology, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China.HouQing-BaiQBState Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.HeJin-WuJWCenter for Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Key Laboratory for Space Bioscience & Biotechnology, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China.DongZhi-WeiZWState Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.ZhaoRuo-PingRPState Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.WangWenWCenter for Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Key Laboratory for Space Bioscience & Biotechnology, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China.State Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.LiXue-YanXYState Key Laboratory of Genetic Resources and Evolution, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, China.engGENBANKMK276878KU670945AB535101KU600949AF328553EF155570EU826678LC154873LC198320AY742225DQ408300DQ072141AY633557AF420006DQ138966EU302126DQ137139AB604789AB604790AB644225AB255748AF139644AF139645FJ545729FJ545728GU062703AB767301AF545853AF545854AF543415AF543414AF543372AF543378AF543399AB098617CG6178Journal ArticleResearch Support, Non-U.S. Gov't20190509United StatesPhotochem Photobiol03764250031-86550Recombinant ProteinsEC 1.13.12.-LuciferasesIMAnimalsCloning, MolecularFirefliesclassificationenzymologyLuciferasesgeneticsmetabolismPhylogenyRecombinant Proteinsmetabolism2018121120190331201941260202092260201941260ppublish3097364010.1111/php.13109References, 2019</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>2.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Biochemical characteristics and gene expression profiles of two paralogous luciferases from the Japanese firefly Pyrocoelia atripennis (Coleoptera, Lampyridae, Lampyrinae): insight into the evolution of firefly luciferase genes.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Bessho-Uehara M, Konishi K, Oba Y<br><font color=gray><i>Photochemical & photobiological sciences : Official journal of the European Photochemistry Association and the European Society for Photobiology, 2017</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>3.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Total evidence phylogeny and the evolution of adult bioluminescence in fireflies (Coleoptera: Lampyridae).</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Martin GJ, Branham MA, Whiting MF, Bybee SM<br><font color=gray><i>Molecular phylogenetics and evolution, 2017</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>4.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Firefly luciferase genes from the subfamilies Psilocladinae and Ototretinae (Lampyridae, Coleoptera).</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Oba Y, Yoshida M, Shintani T, Furuhashi M, Inouye S<br><font color=gray><i>Comparative biochemistry and physiology.
