Title
Concurrent purification and antioxidant activity of phycobiliproteins from Lyngbya sp. A09DM: An antioxidant and anti-aging potential of phycoerythrin in Caenorhabditis elegans
Abstract

•Concurrent purification of PE, PC and APC from Lyngbya sp. A09DM.•A novel use of Triton X-100 in ammonium sulphate fractionation.•In vitro antioxidant activity of purified PE, PC and APC.•Phycoerythrin expands life span of Caenorhabditis elegans.

The present study probes into the purification of phycobiliproteins, and characterization of their in vitro anti-oxidant activity. Moreover, the study also demonstrates the use of antioxidant virtue of phycoerythrin in moderating the phenomenon of aging in Caenorhabditis elegans. Phycoerythrin, phycocyanin and allophycocyanin were purified successfully from Lyngbya sp. A09DM by ammonium sulfate fractionation appended with Triton X-100 intercession. The success of protocol was examined by a series of biochemical characterization like SDS-PAGE, native-PAGE, UV–visible spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy ensuring purity, integrity and functionality of purified phycoerythrin, phycocyanin and allophycocyanin. Purified phycobiliproteins were evaluated for antioxidant and metal ion chelating activity by various in vitro antioxidant assay systems. Results showed significant and dose-dependent antioxidant as well as metal chelating potential of all phycobiliproteins in decreasing order of phycoerythrin > phycocyanin > allophycocyanin. Expansion in lifespan and improvement in pharyngeal pumping of C. elegans were noticed upon pre-treatment with phycoerythrin (100 μg ml−1). Moreover, phycoerythrin mediated increase in worm survival under oxidative stress revealed that the life expansion effect of phycoerythrin on nematode is in part by an action of its antioxidant virtue. These results collectively added up evidence in favor of the ‘free-radical theory of aging’. The present report, for the first time, describes antioxidant potential of phycoerythrin and its use in extending life-span of C. elegans.
