Luciferase is a generic term for the class of oxidative enzymes that produce bioluminescence. ‘Lucifer’ is a Latin word which means ‘light-bringer’, while the ‘-ase’ ending indicates that it is an enzyme. On the other side, luciferin is a substance that emits light when undergoing a reaction catalyzed by luciferase. Likewise, we, Luciferase, aim to provide the light-emitting guidance under no circumstances so that we could construct a close linkage between the Division of Life Sciences and all students, including our members, our Luciferin. Therefore, we believe that Luciferase will be the most suitable name for our cabinet because it shows our determination to serve our members and our department.
