  • Phycocyanobilin
    Phycocyanobilin is a blue phycobilin, i.
  • Phycourobilin
    Phycourobilin is a tetrapyrrole orange molecule involved in photosynthesis in cyanobacteria and red algae.
  • Chlorophyll a
    Chlorophyll a is a specific form of chlorophyll used in oxygenic photosynthesis.
  • Chlorophyll b
    Chlorophyll b is a form of chlorophyll.
  • Phycocyanin
    Phycocyanin is a pigment-protein complex from the light-harvesting phycobiliprotein family, along with allophycocyanin and phycoerythrin.
  • Chlorophyll f
    Chlorophyll f is a type form of chlorophyll that absorbs further in the red (infrared light) than other chlorophylls.
  • Chlorophyll d
    Chlorophyll d is a form of chlorophyll, identified by Harold Strain and Winston Manning in 1943.
  • Phycoerythrobilin
    Phycoerythrobilin is a red phycobilin, i.
  • Phycoerythrin
    Phycoerythrin (PE) is a red protein-pigment complex from the light-harvesting phycobiliprotein family, present in red algae and cryptophytes, accessory to the main chlorophyll pigments responsible for photosynthesis.
  • Porphyrin
    Porphyrins are a group of heterocyclic macrocycle organic compounds, composed of four modified pyrrole subunits interconnected at their α carbon atoms via methine bridges (=CH−).
  • Chlorophyll
    Chlorophyll (also chlorophyl) is a term used for several closely related green pigments found in cyanobacteria and the chloroplasts of algae and plants.
  • Retinal
    Retinal is also known as retinaldehyde.
  • Chlorophyll c
    Chlorophyll c is a form of chlorophyll found in certain marine algae, including the photosynthetic Chromista (e.g. diatoms, brown algae) and dinoflagellates.
