B-PE is a phycobiliprotein which is a building block of phycobilisomes, the light-harvesting complex, in red algae and some cyanobacteria. Phycobilisomes are attached to the stromal side of the thylakoid membrane. B-phycoerythrin has both phycoerythrobilin (on alpha and beta subunits) and phycourobilin (on the gamma subunits) chromophores.
