In the present study, the purified R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) from a red alga Portieria hornemannii was subjected to the analysis of stability under the influence of different agents. Among the various inhibitors tested on R-PE EDTA at lower concentrations (<1 mM) supported the activity of R-PE. When R-PE was exposed to different organic solvents, ethanol supported the activity at the maximum followed by acetone, ethyl acetate, chloroform and methanol. Citric acid, as a preservative maintained the… CONTINUE READING
