Abstract

Biliproteins, covalently bonded complexes of proteins and bile pigments, serve as light-harvesting pigments in photosynthesis and light-sensory pigments of photosynthetic organisms. Recent developments in the biochemistry and biophysics of these pigments are reviewed and an attempt is made to describe their functions of light-harvesting and of information transduction on a molecular level.
