Further Observations on Visual Perception The Influence of Pathologies Upon the Absorption of Light and Emission of Bioluminescence

" This article highlights that light is often required to activate enzymes and/or proteins in biological systems. Inadequate levels of exposure to light may be responsible, at least in part, for the uncoiled nature of proteins found in diabetes mellitus, Alzheimer’s disease, and other conditions. Moreover the emission of light, the consequence of protein reactions with reactive substrates or of reactive oxygen species, is an often observed characteristic of pathologies and influences the visual perception of colour." {Credits 1}

" Light provides the energy of activation required to energise the protein and/or its substrate into their reactive conformations [138]. In most cases this will release energy as heat however, as outlined in this article, it may also be accompanied by the release of electromagnetic radiation in the IR, Visible and UV spectrum." {Credits 1}
