General description

R-Phycoerythrin or R-PE is a fluorescent probe belonging to the group of phycobiliproteins obtained from macroalgae. R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) is a protein acting as a photosynthetic accessory pigment in red algae (Rhodophyta). It is an oligomeric protein of 240 kDa, with 6 α (about 20 kDa), 6 β (about 20 kDa), and 1 γ (about 30 kDa) subunits. Phycobiliproteins are water-soluble light-harvesting proteins with a high fluorescent property.

Application

R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) is useful in the laboratory as a fluorescence-based indicator for the presence of cyanobacteria and a variety of immunofluorescence applications. R-PE is a useful fluoroprobe in various electrophoretic procedures. R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) proteins detect mercury ions in soil and groundwater samples. Phycoerythrin has been widely used in food, cosmetics, immunodiagnostics, and analytical reagents.

Analysis Note

The product is suspended in 150 mM sodium phosphate, 60% ammonium sulfate, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM sodium azide, pH 7.0 and must be dialyzed against conjugation buffer or PBS before conjugation.A566/A280 >4.6, A620/A566 <0.03, A566/A498 <1.5

Phycoerythrins have been widely used in food, cosmetics, immunodiagnostics and analytical reagents. An efficient one-step chromatography method for purification of R-phycoerythrins from Polysiphonia urceolata was described in this paper. Pure R-phycoerythrin was obtained with an absorbance ratio A(565)/A(280) of 5.6

We describe an optical detection technique that delivers high signal-to-noise discrimination to enable a multi-parameter flow cytometer that combines high performance, robustness, compactness and low cost. The enabling technique is termed "spatially modulated detection" and generates a time-dependent signal as

Even though superresolution microscopy indicates that size of plasma membrane rafts is <20 nm, those structures have never been observed. Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is therefore still the most powerful optical method for characterization of such domains. In this letter
