The biliprotein C-phycocyanin modulates the early radiation response: a pilot study.
(2010) reported that electron transport rate and biliprotein content were higher under high nutrient supply which all increased photosynthetic activity thereby increasing plant growth rate and yield.
[delta]-Bilirubin, sometimes termed biliprotein, occurs when conjugated bilirubin covalently binds to albumin (76); it has a half-life of ~17-20 days (the same as albumin), which accounts for the prolonged jaundice in patients recovering from hepatitis or obstruction (77).
Conversely, experimental mouse models of accelerated ageing (e.g., achieved through the administration of D-galactose) have also shown improvement upon treatment with radical-scavenging agents such as the biliprotein C-phycocyanin [222].
The chromatograms showed a bilirubin fraction that eluted at the same time (14.6 min) as the naturally occurring biliprotein in human serum.
Using C-phycocyanin, a biliprotein from Spirulina platensis with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties and INF-[beta] improved the redox status in mice with EAE, although they also differentially modulated another subset of genes.
C-Phycocyanin is a biliprotein found in Spirulina platensis, blue-green algae.
