Term Information

Accession
GO:0042716
Name
plasma membrane-derived chromatophore
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
chromatophore vesicle
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
A pigment-bearing structure that is derived from the cytoplasmic membrane, sometimes consisting of simple invaginations and sometimes a complete vesicle. This component is found in certain photosynthetic bacteria and cyanobacteria. Source: ISBN:0395825172, PMID:11867431, GOC:jl
Comment
Note that this structure is distinct from the chromoplast of plants, which is also sometimes called a chromatophore; it also should not be confused with the specialized pigment-producing cells known as chromatophores, found in fish and amphibian skin.
