- ... Light state transitions (STs) is a reversible physiological process that oxygenic photosynthetic organisms use in order to minimize imbalances in the electronic excitation delivery to the reaction centers of Photosystems I and II, and thus to optimize photosynthesis. STs have been studied extensively in plants, green algae, red algae and cyanobacteria, but sparsely in algae with secondary red alga ...

- ... C-phycoyanins are abundant light-harvesting pigments which have an important role in the energy transfer cascade of photosystems in prokaryotic cyanobacteria and eukaryotic red algae. These proteins have important biotechnological applications, since they can be used in food, cosmetics, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical industries and in biomedical research. Here, C-phycocyanin from the extremophilic ...
