Phycobiliproteins are brilliantly colored, highly fluorescent components of the photosynthetic light-harvesting antenna complexes of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), red algae and cryptomonads. These proteins carry covalently attached linear tetrapyrrole pigments related structurally to biliverdin. Phycobiliproteins, purified from certain organisms, are isolated as either trimers, (αβ)3, of approximatelyM r 110–120×103 (e.g., allophycocyanins), or hexamers, (αβ)6γ, of aboutM r 250×103 (certain… CONTINUE READING
