Wild type Gracilaria tik'ahiae, a macrophytic red alga, and fourteen genetically characterized pigment mutants were analyzed for their biliprotein and chlorophyll contents. The same three biliproteins, phycoerythrin, phycocyanin, and allophycocyanin, which are found in the wild type are found in all the Mendelian and non-Mendelian mutants examined. Some mutants overproduce R-phycoerythrin while others possess only traces of phycobiliprotein; however, no phycoerythrin minus mutants were found… CONTINUE READING
