Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
1The biochemical emission of light by living organisms such as fireflies and deep-sea fishes.
- ‘You can find more books, videos, and software about deep sea life, marine biology, and bioluminescence at the web site above.’
- ‘Rapid control of wound infections by targeted photodynamic therapy monitored by in vivo bioluminescence imaging’
- ‘We are cautioned against confusing bioluminescence with fluorescence and phosphorescence.’
- ‘Most studies that report in vivo bioluminescence emission spectra or describe the color of bioluminescence only deal with the adults.’
- ‘Dinoflagellate bioluminescence differs biochemically from that of other major luminescent groups.’
- ‘The luminescence was quantified in live cells using bioluminescence imaging.’
- ‘Scientists also have not identified the internal pathways or mechanisms in the organisms that trigger physiological responses to flow, such as bioluminescence and changes in growth rate, nutrient uptake, and structure.’
- ‘The chemiluminescent reactions found in living organisms are called bioluminescence.’
- ‘Chemistry and biophysics of bioluminescence.’
- ‘Ultimately he entered the field experimentally with a study on the pseudoflash with J. W. Hastings, soon to attain prominence in the molecular biology of bioluminescence and circadian biology.’
- ‘While it is evident why certain organisms display bioluminescence, some organisms such as mushrooms glow for unknown reasons.’
- ‘It is possible that fluorescence in these medusae represents a daylight functional analog of bioluminescence (similar to ‘blanching’ in comb jellies ).’
- ‘Some species are capable of producing their own light through bioluminescence, which also makes fireflies glow.’
- ‘This new technology, an imaging method known as in vivo bioluminescence, enables investigators to track changes in the viral population in the same animal day after day.’
- ‘The relatively large shear forces that stimulate dinoflagellate bioluminescence are higher than typical levels of oceanic turbulence.’
- ‘Although its biochemistry is well understood and is applied for various scientific techniques, the survival value of bioluminescence to the organisms themselves often remains unclear.’
- ‘This is because some species are capable of bioluminescence, in which chemicals made by the organism produce light in a chemical reaction.’
- ‘New hatchlings, which instinctively head toward the brightest spot on the horizon, confuse urban lights with the ocean's reflection of moonlight, starlight and bioluminescence in the water.’
- ‘In light of their special adaptations related to bioluminescence, buoyancy, crypsis, feeding, intelligence, speed, and vision, they are generally considered to be among the most highly evolved marine invertebrates.’
- ‘How do flows trigger physiological responses such as bioluminescence in organisms, or changes in growth rate, nutrient uptake, and cell structure?’
- 1.1The light emitted by organisms such as fireflies and deep-sea fishes.
- ‘However, bioluminescence, which is quite rare on land, is found at all depths in the sea, and ranges from a steady glow to flashes of varying duration, frequency and intensity.’
- ‘If the source is a bioluminescent searchlight, the ideal reflectance depends on the irradiance of the bioluminescence striking the organism relative to the background radiance.’
- ‘At 150 meters below the ocean surface, all is dark - until the submersible, Alvin, descends into a firestorm of bioluminescence produced by barely visible sea creatures.’
- ‘This suggests that directed bioluminescence and the transmission of bioluminescence through gut walls are more important than ambient light for detecting animals at mesopelagic depths.’
- ‘With transfected cells grown as solid tumors in vivo, the bioluminescence light is emitted shortly after systemic administration of luciferin.’
- ‘It's been pretty well established that some squids use bioluminescence to communicate.’
- ‘Examples include incredibly sensitive eyes - designed to pick up even the faintest blue glow of another animal's bioluminescence.’
