One Of The Most Studied Effects Of Phycocyanin

- Nov 18, 2017 -

One of the most studied effects of Phycocyanin is its antioxidant capacity and its free radical scavenging ability, both in-vivo & in-vitro (Romay et. al., 1998). 

Anti-oxidant potential of phycocyanin is mainly attributed to its phycobilisome (chromophore) moiety (Patel et. al., 2006) and partially to its apoprotein counterpart (Apt et. al., 1995) as the former shows high degree of conjugation of double bonds which stabilizes free radicals. 

It is well known that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in a diversity of important processes in medicine including inflammation, atherosclerosis, cancer, reperfusion injury etc. One way by which a substance can interfere with these processes, is by acting as an antioxidant. 

Phycocyanin is able to scavenge free radicals in the cells, protecting cells from damage which prevents or lessens the severity of the diseases (Wang et. al., 2007).
