Definition

Protein interacting with bacteriochlorophyll, a photosynthetic pigment found in non-oxygenic photosynthetic bacteria. It is a magnesium-porphyrin complex esterified to a long hydrophobic terpenoid side chain (the alcohol phytol). It differs from chlorophyll of oxygenic organisms in the substituents around the tetrapyrrole nucleus of the molecule, and in the absorption spectra. Different bacteria have different species of bacteriochlorophyll.
