The pigment responsible for the blue-green blood plasma coloration of Clinocottus analis has been isolated by acid hydrolysis and further purified by liquid chromatography. The visible light absorption spectrum of the pigment and the behavior of it on thin layer chromatography was the same as that of authentic biliverdin. Furthermore, it reacted with barbituric acid in a manner similar to that of biliverdin and the pigment was converted to bilirubin through chemical reduction. These results clearly indicated that the blue-green prosthetic group in the plasma of C. analis is biliverdin.
