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 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)
