We report a DNA isolation protocol for red seaweeds. Recovering DNA of high quality and quantity is a prerequisite for ensuring suitable applications, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis, and sequencing. Isolation of DNA from seaweeds has proven difficult because of coprecipitation of(More)
The aim of this research is to statistically optimize enzymatic hydrolysis parameters for the production of R-phycoerythrin (RPE) from red algae Gracilaria verrucosa. Six independent variables, incubation temperature, incubation time, ratio of buffer to raw material, cellulase loading, xylanase loading, and pH, were selected for response surface methodology(More)
The microalga Porphyridium cruentum is known to produce many components of interest. One of them is B-Phycoerythrin (B-PE), a water-soluble intracellular pigment used as an immunofluorescent probe. Current methods to extract this molecule involve total cell disruption and lead to a mix of all the water-soluble components. Subsequently, the pigment(More)
The influence of 8 mineralisation (dry and wet ashings) procedures on the determination of the mineral content of the brown seaweed Undaria pinnatifida by atomic absorption spectrophotometry was studied. Two procedures are proposed for routine analysis: dry ashing using sample calcination at 450 °C, followed by ash treatment with hydrochloric acid and(More)
