Chlorophyll a interference in phycocyanin and allophycocyanin spectrophotometric quantification

Abstract

The accurate quantification of cyanobacteria phycobiliproteins is an important aspect in various research topics, such as cyanobacteria ecology and physiology studies, and especially to calibrate algorithms used in remote sensing of cyanobacterial blooms. Here we present a spectroscopic approach, exploiting spectrophotometric equations, aimed at improving the phycocyanin and allophycocyanin quantification when chlorophyll a is present in the phycobiliprotein aqueous extract.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
