Phycocyanin is natural light blue colorant extracted from blue-green algea (Spirulina ).It`s good water soluble, Alcohol and lipid insoluble. Phycocyanin accounts for as much as 20% protein and attaches itself to photosynthesizing membranes, also it`s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It`s an accessory pigment to chlorophyll.Phycocyanin is derived from C-phycocyanin and allophycocyanin which have fluoresent properties that are valuable to research in immune assay kits. Phycocyanin is selective about which cells it attaches to, making it simple to track down.

Effects and Application:
application researches for C-Phycocyanin are very wide, which can be summarized in the following
and lovely, it can be used as food colorant and additive of cosmetics. In addition, it is extremely
rich protein, with complete amino acid composition and 37.2% of essential amino-acid.
(2) Health care food: the vitro experiment of C-Phycocyanin proves that it possesses stimulation
red cell generation, with effects of similar erythrogenin (EPO). C-Phycocyanin can assist in
adjusting and integrating various important enzyme needed by human body, which is very important
for restraining the generation of cancer cells and promoting regeneration of human cells. And at
the same time, it can adjust human body’s immune system, enhance immune system’s functions,
and improve human body’s resistance towards diseases. At present, foreigners have researched
and manufactured various C-Phycocyanin composite drugs, and they think that C-Phycocyanin can
promote immunization and resist diseases. C-Phycocyanin plays an obvious effect on restraining
some cancer cells.
(3) Special reagents for biology, chemical, and cytology test: C-Phycocyanin is blue with fluorescence,
which can be used as research reagents for biology, cytology, and some photodynamics. In addition,
it can be used as biological markers. Furthermore, another effect of C-Phycocyanin is being used
as fluorescent agent, whose fluorescence effects are 30 times of common fluorescein. Special

as fluorescent agent, whose fluorescence effects are 30 times of common fluorescein. When
excited by light, can emit strong red fluorescence, used in clinical in vitro diagnostic tumor and
cancer, early diagnosis of cancer cells is significant, can be used as a new photosensitizer, laser
therapy for cancer has significant sensitizing effect. According to reports, the phycocyanin as
photosensitizer can make laser on tumor cell killing rate increased from 12% to 88%, the cure
rate of cancer increased by 55%.
