Medical Definition of Chlorophyll c

1. The chlorophyll present in brown algae, diatoms, and flagellates. Two variants are known: c 1, in which two hydrogens are lost from C-17 and C-18, thus resembling phytoporphyrin, and the side chain at C-17 becomes an acrylic residue, -CH==CH2COOH; c2, in which the same changes are noted, but two more hydrogens are lost from the ethyl group at C-8, making this a vinyl residue like that at C-3. The two compounds can thus be named in terms of phytoporphyrin: magnesium 31,32,171,172-tetradehydro-132-(methoxycarbonyl)phytoporphyrinate and magnesium 31,32,81,82,171,172-hexadehydro-132-(methoxycarbonyl)phytoporphyrinate. Synonym: chlorofucin. (05 Mar 2000)
