Lumichrome is a fluorescent, biologically active flavin produced by Micomonospora sp. and some other actinomycetes, fungi and plants, also formed by photolysis of riboflavin in acid or neutral solution. Lumichrome is a signalling molecule that enhances plant growth through a combination of enhanced cell division and cell enlargement and possible enhancement of photosynthesis. Lumichrome activates the LasR bacterial quorum sensing receptor and has anti-apoptotic activity via p53. Lumichrome inhibits osteoclastogenesis and bone resorption.
