Publisher: Biotechnology Advances
Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: Phycobiliproteinsareagroupofwatersolubleproteinswithanassociatedchromophore,responsibleforthelight-harvestingincyanobacteria.Theyaredividedinfourmaintypes:phycoerythrin,phycocyanin,phycoer-ythrocyanin and allophycocyanin, and they are characterized according to their structure and light qualityabsorption.Phycobiliproteinsfromcyanobacteriahavebeendescribedaspotentialbioactivecompounds,andrecognizedashigh-valuednaturalproductsforbiotechnologicalapplications.Moreover,phycobiliproteinshavebeenassociatedtoantioxidant,anticancerandanti-inflammatorycapacitiesamongothers.Thus,inordertoproducephycobiliproteinsfromcyanobacteriaforindustrialapplication,itisnecessarytooptimizethewholebioprocess,includingtheprocessingparameters(suchaslight,nitrogenandcarbonsource,pH,temperatureandsalinity)thataffectsthegrowthandphycobiliproteinaccumulation,aswellastheoptimizationofphycobili-proteinsextractionandpurification.Theaimofthisreviewistogiveanoverviewofphycobiliproteinsnotonlyin terms of their chemistry, but also in terms of their biotechnological applicability and the advances andchallengesintheproductionofsuchcompounds
