phycoerythrin

(fī′kō-ĕr′ĭ-thrĭn)
n.
Any of several orange-red phycobiliproteins that are found especially in red algae.

phycoerythrin

A phycobilin pigment present in cyanobacteria which can be coupled to antibodies for detecting proteins and antigens due to the extremely bright (red) signal immunofluorescence assays.

phycoerythrin

a red pigment with a photosynthetic function found in red algae and some cyanobacteria, with absorption peaks at 490,546 and 576 nm (see ABSORPTION SPECTRUM).

Cells were then fixed, permeabilized, and incubated with the monoclonal antibody (mAb) phycoerythrin (PE) conjugated specifically for IFN-[gamma] (phycoerythrin-conjugated IFN-[gamma] mAb-IFN-[gamma]-PE, clone 45.B3), TNF-[alpha] (phycoerythrin-conjugated TNF-[alpha] mAb-TNF-[alpha]-PE, clone MAb11), and IL-10 (phycoerythrin-conjugated IL-10 mAb-IL10-[alpha]-PE, clone JES3-9D7) cytokines (all from Biolegend, USA).
Red algae contain a pigment called phycoerythrin which reflects red light, making the algae appear red.
cruentum's carotene has Phycoerythrin. Pigment composition of algae from the genus Nannochloropsis is characterized by chlorophyll a (not chlorophyll b or chlorophyll c), carotene, violaxanthin and vaucheriaxanthin as major pigments.
The separation process was followed by replacing the eluent with a solution of 10% diethyl ether in petroleum ether to produce 0.76 g (8.9%) chlorophyll (green), 0.035 g (0.41%) [beta]-carotene (yellow), 0.03 (0.35%) phycoerythrin (orange), and residues.
Binding of G[alpha]F-Ig[gamma] BIO was revealed using phycoerythrin conjugated streptavidin (SAPE) (Biolegend, Cat #405204).
After washing with DPBS, cells were incubated for 1h in DPBS containing PE-conjugated donkey anti-sheep secondary antibody [Donkey F(ab')2 Anti-Sheep IgG H&L (Phycoerythrin) preadsorbed; Abcam], washed with DPBS, and mounted as described above.
Cells were characterized for expression of surface markers by using fluorescence-labeled mouse monoclonal antibodies binding specifically to human HLA-DR (phycoerythrin (PE) fluorescent labeled; Becton Dickinson Biosciences, San Jose, CA, USA) and CD45 (PerCP fluorescent labeled; Becton Dickinson Biosciences).
