Phycobiliproteins as a commodity: trends in applied research, patents and commercialization

  title={Phycobiliproteins as a commodity: trends in applied research, patents and commercialization},
  author={Soundarapandian Sekar and Muruganandham Chandramohan},
  journal={Journal of Applied Phycology},
Phycobiliproteins are a group of colored proteins commonly present in cyanobacteria and red algae possessing a spectrum of applications. They are extensively commercialized for fluorescent applications in clinical and immunological analysis. They are also used as a colorant, and their therapeutic value has also been categorically demonstrated. However, a comprehensive knowledge and technological base for augmenting their commercial utilities is lacking. Hence, this work is focused towards this… CONTINUE READING
