Product Description

Phycoethyrin (RPE) is a 240 kDa protein from the light-harvesting phycobilliprotein family, present in cyanobacteria, red algae and cryptomonads. Like all phycobilliprotein, phycoerythrin is composed of a protein part, organised in a hexameric structure of alpha and beta chains, covalently binding chromophores called phycobilins. In the phycoerythrin family, the phycobilins are: phycoerythrobilin, the typical phycoerythrin acceptor chromophore, and sometimes phycourobilin (marine organisms). Phycoerythrins are the phycobilliprotein which bind the highest number of phycobilins (up to six per alpha-beta subunit dimer). Subunit structure: (αβ)6γ. RPE purified from Poryhyra tenera; Absorption Maximum: 565 nm± 2 nm (2 smaller peaks are observed at 490 and 545 nm. Emission Maximum: 580 nm. Purity: Absorbance ratio: 565/280 >5.0. Absorbance: Absorbance 1% 565 nm=82.
