Concentrations of seven heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Ni, Co and Fe) were measured in the seawater, sediments, common scleractinian reef-building corals and soft corals (Octocorallia : Alcyonacea) at seven reef sites in the Northern Red Sea: I (Hurghada), II (Ras Za’farana), III (El-Ain Al-Sukhna), IV (El-Tur), V (Sha’b Rashdan), VI (Sharm El-Sheikh) and(More)
Chemical investigation of an ethyl acetate soluble fraction of Sinularia polydactyla (Ehrenberg) led to the isolation of three known terpenoides, two of them sterols, 24-methylcholestane-3β,5α,6β,25-tetrol 25-monoacetate (1), 24-methylcholestane-5-en-3β,25-diol (2), in addition to a cembranoid diterpene, durumolide C (3), for the first time. The(More)
The chemical study on the total extract of the zoanthid Palythoa tuberculosa, collected from the Red Sea, resulted in the isolation of seven polyhydroxylated sterols (1-7), six of which, palysterols A-F (2-7), are new. Their chemical structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive analysis of their 1-, 2D NMR and MS spectroscopic data. This is the(More)
Reflexed saltmarsh-grass suspension cultures produced by seed callus were frozen to the liquid nitrogen temperature. Cooling rates, cryoprotectants and holding times were taken as a function of transfer temperatures. The highest survival of cells (45%) was found at a freezing rate of 1°C min-1, without cryoprotectant treatments. The cryoprotectants(More)
