Kynurenine identified as the short-wave absorbing lens pigment in the deep-sea fish Stylephorus chordatus.


A number of deep-sea fish have bright yellow lenses whose coloration is attributable to a variety of largely unidentified short-wave absorbing pigments. Here the pigment of the deep-sea fish Stylephorus chordatus has been isolated and identified by NMR and mass spectroscopy as kynurenine; a pigment also found in the human lens. The degree of this… (More)
