There are other photosynthetic dexter such as Bacteriorhodopsin and vertebrate rhodopsin. Bacteriorhodopsin is used by the halobacteria in the Archaea and vertebrate rhopdopsin is to be found in the retina in the eyes of vertebrates. I'm sure there must be others... -Martin.
- I don't think rhodopsin qualifies as a photosynthetic pigment. I added phycobilin, bacteriorhodopsin and bacteriochlorophyll. Do we have them all now? AxelBoldt 06:23, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Disputed: I don't think Bacteriorhodopsin is considered a photosyntheic pigment. Also, Halobacteria (if you are speaking about the family Halobacteriales) do not undergo photosynthesis to the best of my knowledge.this page has no answers!!!!!!! They just use light to drive certain metabolic processes. Therefore, they cannot be considered photosynthetic archaea. I have added a disputed accuracy banner to the last section.
