The PMC ID is a unique number assigned to each PubMed Central record. It's like a bar code, with no intrinsic meaning. In communications with the NIH,

If you know the PubMed ID (PMID), which is the identifying number of the citation in PubMed, you can convert it to the corresponding PMCID without searching
PMC. You can also convert from the PMCID to the PMID.
