Definition: A member of the class of benzothiazoles that is Photinus luciferin in which the phenolic hydroxy group has been replaced by a sulfo group. Enzymatic derivative of firefly luciferin produced by luciferin sulfotransferase (LST) from luciferin with 3'-phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS) as co-substrate. Not a substrate for firefly luciferase. Likely the in-vivo storage form of luciferin.
