De novo sequence analysis and intact mass measurements for characterization of phycocyanin
subunit isoforms from the blue-green alga Aphanizomenon flos-aquae.
Cloning and sequencing of the phycocyanin
from Spirulina maxima and its evolutionary analysis.
Also, Spirulina is rich in other nutritionally beneficial organic molecules such as gamma linoleic acid, phycocyanins
, phenolic acids, beta-carotene and chlorophyll .
Spirulina contains several known antioxidants, e.g., chlorophyll a, carotenoids, phycocyanins
, glutathione, tocopherol, and others [5-7].

Antioxidant properties of Spirulina are due to phycocyanin
and vitamin E present in it [24,25].
The latter effect was observed also in mice treated with phycocyanin
isolated from Spirulina and was accompanied by a decrease in cholesterol, triglycerides, and malondialdehyde (MDA) and by an increase in the serum total antioxidant capacity .

Sunnyvale, CA, November 13, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Turner Designs now offers phycocyanin
(PC) as an optical configuration of their FluoroSense handheld fluorometer to assist with identification of PC containing algae typically associated with Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs).
We obtained anti-phycocyanin from Bioss (Woburn, MA), microtiter ELISA plates from Corning (Corning, NY), microcystin LR and anti-FceRI from EMD Millipore Corporation (Billerica, MA), Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM) from ATCC (Manassas, VA), and phycocyanin
, G418, and pNPP substrate from Sigma-Aldrich (St.
