Phycocyanin Powder is natural light blue colorant extracted from blue-green algea (Spirulina ). It`s good water soluble, alcohol and lipid insoluble. Phycocyanin Powder accounts for as much as 20% protein and attaches itself to photosynthesizing membranes, also it`s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It`s an accessory pigment to chlorophyll. Phycocyanin is derived from C-phycocyanin and allophycocyanin which have fluoresent properties that are valuable to research in immune assay kits. Phycocyanin powder is selective about which cells it attaches to, making it simple to track down.
Phycocyanin is a pigment from the light-harvesting phycobiliprotein family, along with allophycocyanin and phycoerythrin. It is an accessory pigment to chlorophyll. All phycobiliproteins are water-soluble and therefore cannot exist within the membrane as do carotenoids, but aggregate forming clusters that adhere to the membrane called phycobilisomes.
Phycocyanin is a characteristic light blue colour, absorbing orange and red light, particularly near 620 nm (depending on which specific type it is), and emits fluorescence at about 650 nm (also depending on which type it is).
Allophycocyanin absorbs and emits at longer wavelengths than Phycocyanin C or Phycocyanin R. Phycocyanins are found in Cyanobacteria (previously called blue-green algae). Phycobiliproteins have fluorescent properties that are used in immunoassay kits.
