About this deal

One theory, proposed by Seliger et al. in 1993, stated that luciferases were actually a group of mixed function oxygenases [ 11]. According to him, bioluminescence evolved primarily as a means of intra-specific or inter-specific interaction in the dark, deep sea biome. Marek P, Papaj D, Yeager J, Molina S, Moore W. Bioluminescent aposematism in millipedes. Curr. Biol. Elsevier; 2011;21(18):R680-1 He continues, “So Ruby’s sweater, which many years ago may have been painted with an added displacement of bumps, is actually woven, so that when she grows a little bit bigger, you see the texture stretching and the spaces between the woven fabric growing. I was introduced to that on this movie, and I couldn't have dreamed for this kind of detail to be possible.” The chemical structure of dinoflagellate luciferin (sourced from Pyrocystis lunula) is remarkably unique [ 20], similar only to that found in euphausiids (krill). This perhaps is an example of dietary linkage, as krill are known to source their luciferin from the food they consume [ 4]. Dinoflagellate luciferin is believed to be a derivative of chlorophyll [ 20]. Unlike most species that are autotrophic in nature, some heterotrophic species even supplement their luciferin synthesis with chlorophyll-rich diets [ 4].

Bioluminescence in annelids has independently emerged in several lineages [ 46], resulting in a rich taxonomic diversity [ 36] spanning across 45 different genera in 13 lineages of clitellates and polychaetes [ 7]. They are found in diverse terrestrial and aquatic habitats all across the globe.

Every single bottle sold will help us continue our vital work of removing ocean debris, as well as training new volunteers to help us make an even bigger splash in 2022.” • The Kraken Rum unveils its second bottle from the ‘Unknown Deep’ limited-edition series, which was discovered by a crew of brave divers following a close encounter with The Beast itself.Davis MP, Sparks JS, Smith WL.

The second limited-edition bottle from The Kraken’s ‘Unknown Deep’ collection, representing the second attempted expedition to find The Beast, comes contained within its own distressed diving cage – a tribute to the brave explorers who risked life and limb by plunging to the very darkest depths to haul these mysterious bioluminescent bottles to the e-shelves.Gouveneaux A, Mallefet J. Physiological control of bioluminescence in a deep-sea planktonic worm, Tomopteris helgolandica. J. Exp. Biol. The Company of Biologists Ltd; 2013;216(22):4285-9 Dinoflagellates are a group of cosmopolitan protistan organisms [ 29] having an ancient evolutionary history, which form one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in the aquatic ecosystems [ 30]. They are the only photosynthetic organisms that are capable of bioluminescence [ 30], and are the most dominant contributors to the occurrence of this phenomenon in the upper ocean [ 31]. Common phenomena like the “Red Tides” and the bioluminescent bays of Jamaica are because of the dramatic increase in the population of Gonyaulax and other dinoflagellate species. Gonyaulax polyedra is supposedly the most studied dinoflagellate species [ 20]. Other common bioluminescent genera are Ceratium, Protoperidinium, Pyrocystis, Noctiluca, [ 31] and Alexandrianum [ 29]. There have been inaccurate records of bioluminescent dinoflagellate species in the past, because of the presence of both bioluminescent as well as non-bioluminescent strains belonging to the same species. Difference in the ability has been observed even between cells of the same strain [ 31].
