Biliproteins Of Cryptomonad Algae

, : Biliproteins Of Cryptomonad Algae. Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy. Section B: Biological, Geological, and Chemical Science 63: 191-199

Phycoerythrins and phycocyanins have been isolated and characterised from eight species of cryptomonads (Division Cryptophyta, Class Crypto-phyceae, Order Cryptomonadales). Their absorption spectral characteristics are compared with thos of previously described cryptomonad biliproteins. Fluorescence spectra of cryptomonad biliproteins are recorded for the first time. Denaturation and hydrolysis studies of phycocyanins from cryptomonads indicate that they contain two dissimilar coloured prosthetic groups, or chromophores, one of which has been identified with the pigment of C-phycocyanin.
