Abstract

An effective procedure for the rapid extraction and purification of the biliprotein R-phycoerythrin from a red alga, Ceramium isogonum, was developed. The purified R-phycoerythrin of C. isogonum consisted of three components with mol wt 180,000 (6β subunits), 70,000 (6α subunits), and 30,400 (γ subunit), respectively. The phycoerythrin is suitable for use as a natural food coloring and can also be used as a fluorescent label.
