will be presenting a comprehensive presentation on the subject of
bioluminescence chemical mechanisms before I graduate this May.  I have
come across difficulties in my attempts to find sources that actually
describe the mechanisms for bioluminescence.  While I realize much of this
may be due to the variation between species and protiens, I would be
satisfied with descriptions of three or four mechanisms.  Does anyone know
of an available source that I could utilize for my presentation?  I have
found references to some text-book-type sources that I can't seem to get
ahold of, and have rather come up against a brick wall.  I would really
appreciate any insight you could offer in this matter.  Thank you!
