Abstract:

R-phycoerythrin from Ceramium rubrum and C-phycocyanin from Nostoc nuscorum were obtained in purified form by fractional crystallization, followed by chromatography and gel-filtration. The amino acid composition of both chromoproteins was determined 85 of the total weight of both was recovered as amino acids. Alanine was identified as the only C-terminal amino acid of R-phycoerythrin, each molecule of which contained about 12 terminal groups. Serine was identified as the only C-terminal group of C-phycocyanin. Author
