Peridinin is a light-harvesting carotenoid, a pigment associated with chlorophyll and found in the peridinin-chlorophyll-protein (PCP) light-harvesting complex in dinoflagellates, best studied in Amphidinium carterae.
The PCP complex is unique in its high ratio of peridinin to chlorophyll; most light-harvesting complexes contain more chlorophyll than carotenoids, but the PCP contains eight peridinin and two chlorophyll molecules arranged to promote peridinin-chlorophyll energy transfer. The PCP complex is a protein trimer with an unusual alpha solenoid protein fold with a molecular weight of 35kDa.

Peridinin chlorophyll (PerCP) is commonly used in immunoassays such as fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) and flow cytometry. The fluorophore is covalently linked to proteins or antibodies for use in research applications.
