Preferred Term:

light harvesting complex

A pigment-protein complex that harvests light energy and converts it to exciton energy that can migrate to the photosynthetic reaction center where photosynthesis occurs. The light is absorbed by pigment molecules (e.g., chlorophyll, bacteriochlorophyll, carotenoids, phycobilin) that are attached to the protein.
