Functional in vitro association and dissociation of a phycobiliprotein complex, isolated from phycobilisomes of the red alga Porphyridium sordidum, were studied. The complex contained large bangiophyceaen phycoerythrin and cyanophytan phycocyanin in an equimolar ration and had absorption maxima at 625, 567, and 550 nm and a shoulder at 495 nm.
