Bilins, bilanes or bile pigments are natural pigments formed in numerous living beings as a metabolic result of specific porphyrins. Bilin (likewise called bilichrome) was named as a bile pigment of animals, yet can likewise be found in lower vertebrates, spineless creatures, and in addition red algae, green plants and cyanobacteria. Bilins can range from red, orange, yellow or darker to blue or green. In chemical terms, bilins are linear arrangements of four pyrrole rings (tetrapyrroles). In human metabolism, bilirubin is a breakdown result of heme. Hydroxymethyl bilane is a major anabolicproduct from the biosynthetic reactipons of porphobilinogen (PBG) and uroporphyrinogen I synthase (known as porphobilinogen deaminase). Models of bilins are found in animals and phycocyanobilin, the chromophore of the photosynthetic color phycocyanin in green algae and plants. In plants, bilins likewise serves as the photopigments of the photoreceptor protein phytochrome.In case of an invertebrate bilin is micromatabilin, which is responsible of the green color of the Green Huntsman Spider, Micrommata virescens
Biochemistry and Modern Applications is a peer reviewed Journal, with rapid publication process.
