|Application of Phycocyanin
a. The product phycocyanin, produced by Aphanizomenon flos-aquae and Spirulina, is used in the food and beverage industry as a natural coloring agent ‘Lina Blue’ and is found in sweets and ice cream.
b. phycocyanin can be used as Nutritious.
c. phycocyanin can anti-cancer and strenthen immune system.Intoduction of Phycocyanin
Phycocyanin is a pigment from the light-harvesting phycobiliprotein family, along with allophycocyanin and phycoerythrin. It is an accessory pigment to chlorophyll. All phycobiliproteins are water-soluble and therefore cannot exist within the membrane as do carotenoids, but aggregate forming clusters that adhere to the membrane called phycobilisomes.
Phycocyanin is a characteristic light blue colour, absorbing orange and red light, particularly near 620 nm (depending on which specific type it is), and emits fluorescence at about 650 nm (also depending on which type it is).
Allophycocyanin absorbs and emits at longer wavelengths than Phycocyanin C or Phycocyanin R. Phycocyanins are found in Cyanobacteria (previously called blue-green algae). Phycobiliproteins have fluorescent properties that are used in immunoassay kits.
Name of Phycocyanin
Phycocyanin is from the Greek phyco meaning”algae”and cyanin is from the English word”cyan”, which conventionally means a shade of blue-green (close to “aqua”) and is derived from the Greek “kyanos” which means a somewhat different color: “dark blue.”

1. Phycocyanin in Phycocyanin can help regulate the synthesis of the human body in need of a variety of important enzymes, and it plays an important role in the inhibition of cancer cell growth and promotion of human cell regeneration.;
2. Phycocyanin can also regulate the body’s immune system, enhance the immune system function, improve the body’s resistance to disease;
3. Phycocyanin has function of anti-oxidation, anti-allergic moisturizing, anti-inflammatory freckle and other effects;
4. Another function of Phycocyanin is acting as fluorescent agent, the fluorescent effect is 30 times than the normal fluorescein
