A protein quantification method, devised by Kalb and Bernlohr, was utilised to remove the influence of phycobilisome pigments on protein quantification prior to analysis. Control samples of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and bovine cytochrome c (cyt) were used as standards of known concentration to investigate this method and how it scaled for individual proteins and mixtures of proteins.

This dataset shows that there was an over-estimation of cyt that scaled linearly, and a slight underestimation of BSA that did not appear to scale. When combined together, the effects of the linear scaling were still present, however were reduced by half.
