Ligninolitic fungi also produce these oxidizing species also during the lignin degradation process. Similar to the bioluminescence of fireflies, whose study allowed the development of several analytical tools for the most diverse purposes, from rapid bioassays for monitoring microbial contamination of food to the use of luc and lux genes as a probe in Molecular Biology, the study of bioluminescent fungi have the potential to generate new academic and applied knowledge.

The bioluminescent species Gerronema viridilucens and Mycena lucentipes were studied aiming to establish a correlation between the temporal profiles of bioluminescence, cellular viability and antioxidant defense enzymes and ligninolitic enzymes in mycelium and fruiting bodies. The inhibition effect of phenols funos metals copper and cadmium on mycelium viability reinforces the notion that cellular oxidative damage hampers bioluminescence emission.

This may explain the irreproducibility of the light profile from M. The enzymatic data pointed to higher activities in mycelium than in fruiting bodies, probably due to a main reproductive function of the latter, whereas the metabolic hioluminescentes are prevalent in the mycelium.

Under normal conditions, the bioluminescence system, the antioxidant defenses and the cellular respiration sets cooperate through the common demand of reducing power of NAD P H. With the collaboration of groups in Russia, USA and Japan, our group actively participated in the elucidation of this system.


Regarding the metals, glutathione was found to be a crucial antioxidant, both to eliminate peroxides when in the presence of copper, and to act as a cadmium chelating agent. This document is only for private use for research and teaching activities.

Redox active copper and heavy metals cadmium were found to display higher impact on antioxidant defenses than phenols phenol and 2,4,6-trichlorophenolwhich are expected to be promptly metabolized and excluded by principally glutathione S-transferase GST.

Notably, bjoluminescentes metabolic correlation between bioluminescence inhibition and antioxidant defenses was unveiled by the present work. Sorry, but Javascript is not enabled in your browser!


Under chemical stress, the NAD P H flux would be deviated from bioluminescence, to principally sustain the antioxidant defenses and cellular respiration, essential for the protection, maintenance and reproduction of the organism.

Mycologia Biioluminescentes gardneri: Different species of fungi exhibit different characteristics linked to light emission and antioxidant defenses. Although it was described by Aristotle, the emission of light by bioluminescent mushrooms remained a mystery for thousands of years.

Current Biology Circadian control sheds light on fungal bioluminescence.

Reproduction for commercial use is forbidden. Any uses or copies of this document bioluminescentrs whole or in part must include the author’s name. PPS The enzymatic nature of fungal bioluminescence.


PPS Evidence that a single bioluminescent system is shared by bioluminedcentes known bioluminescent fungal lineages. Sincehowever, the mystery began to be unraveled, with the publication of articles on the ecological function of light emission, the identity of luciferin, luciferase and the mechanism of light emission.

Chemical toxicants such as metals and phenols were here found to affect light emission, cellular viability, antioxidant defenses and cellular respiration enzymes when administered to G. Ligninolytic enzymes exhibit low activities in the extracts of fungus samples, probably because they are extracellular degradation enzymes.

Oxidative stress and bioluminescence in the fungi Gerronema viridilucens and Mycena bioluminescents. Mycologia Luminescent Mycena: Differences in light emission displayed by different species do not resume to fruiting bodies, but the light profile and intensity can also vary in the mycelia.
