1.What is C-Phycocyanin?
C-phycocyanin is a protein-bound pigment soluble in water and found in some blue-green microalgae such as Spirulina, which is used in many countries as a dietary supplement. According to Romay et al. (1998b), phycocyanin shows anti-inflammatory activity in four experimental models of inflammation. It reduced significantly and in a dose-dependent manner ear edema induced by arachidonic acid and tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate in mice as well as carrageenan-induced rat paw oedema in intact and adrenalectomized animals. Moreover, phycocyanin also exerted an inhibitory effect in the cotton pellet granuloma test.
C-Phycocyanin (C-PC)1 occurs as the major phycobiliprotein in many cyanobacteria and as a secondary phycobiliprotein in some red algae. The pigment has a single visible absorption maximum at 620 nm and a fluorescence emission maximum at ~642 nm. It shows two bands corresponding to α (21,360 Da) and β (18,980 Da) subunits on SDS-PAGE2. These two subunits usually occur in equal numbers, but the exact number of α and β pairs may vary among the species.

*Color Value(10%E618nm)=Absorbance(at 618nm)×100/0.25g Measure 0.25g of
Phycocyanin and dissolve it into the 100ml of the buffer solution adjusted PH6.0 using volumetric
flask correctly. Then dilute the solution 10times and measure the absorbance at 618nm using the cell
which is 1cm in thickness.
3. C-Phycocyanin Benefits
Phycocyanin can promote animal blood cell regeneration, improve lymphocyte activity and lymphatic system to improve immune function, and comprehensively enhance the disease resistance of the body 73. In addition, C-phycocyanin could inhibit TGF-β1-induced EMT and C-PC might be a potential anti-fibrosis drug
C-Phycocyanin has found numerous applications in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industry. It is used primarily in the latter as a natural coloring agent.
C Phycocyanin is used in the coloring of fermented milk products, ice creams, chewing gum, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, desserts, cake decoration, milk shakes, etc.
C Phycocyanin is used in the coloring of cosmetics.
C-Phycocyanin is used as a fluorescent marker in immunological studies.
Consumption of phycocyanin in the form of spirulina or supplement leads to optimal health. In the current situation where the environment is full of toxins from pollution from oil, gas, heavy metals and nuclear isotopes, consumption of spirulina/phycocyanin is highly beneficial.
C-Phycocyanin is available in spray dried powder form.
