The role of kleptoplasts in the survival rates of Elysia timida (Risso, 1818): (Sacoglossa: Opisthobranchia) during periods of food shortage
The importance of photosynthetic products derived from kleptoplasts in several sacoglossan species is being investigated in different fields, such as chemistry, biomolecular genetics and ecology.Expand
Fatty acid composition of the edible sea cucumber Athyonidium chilensis
The edible sea cucumber Athyonidium chilensis is a fishery resource of high commercial value in Chile, but no information on its lipid and fatty acid composition has been previously reported.Expand
Antiproliferative, Cytotoxic and Hemolytic Activities of a Triterpene Glycoside from Psolus patagonicus and Its Desulfated Analog
Background: The major triterpene glycoside of the sea cucumber Psolus patagonicus and its desulfated analog were tested for their antiproliferative, cytotoxic and hemolytic activities, and theirExpand
Identification of sulfated steroidal glycosides from the starfish Heliaster helianthus by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry
The starfish Heliaster helianthus contains Thornasteroside A (1) and Helianthoside (2) and its isomer (3) as the major sulfated steroidal glycosides. Saponin containing fractions obtained byExpand
Ultrastructure of the digestive gland of larval and adult stages of the sacoglossan Elysiapatagonica
Abstract. Chloroplast retention in the sacoglossan gastropod Elysiapatagonica Muniain and Ortea, 1997 was investigated. Intact chloroplasts of the green algae Bryopsisplumosa (Chlorophyta:Expand
Chemical ecology and bioactivity of triterpene glycosides from the sea cucumber Psolus patagonicus (Dendrochirotida: Psolidae)
Information on the chemical ecology and bioactivity of chemical compounds present in the sea cucumber Psolus patagonicus is provided through an interdisciplinary approach. The specimens studied wereExpand
Bromopyrrole alkaloids isolated from the Patagonian bryozoan Aspidostoma giganteum.
Nine new bromopyrrole alkaloids, aspidostomides A-H and aspidazide A (1-9), were isolated from the Patagonian bryozoan Aspidostoma giganteum. Aspidostomides A-H have dibromotyrosine- orExpand
Photosynthetic activity of the solar-powered lagoon mollusc Elysia timida (Risso, 1818) (Opisthobranchia: Sacoglossa).
The sacoglossan Elysia timida (Risso, 1818) is typical of shallow sea areas and coastal lagoons. It retains symbiotic functional chloroplasts derived from its algal food Acetabularia acetabulumExpand
Patagonicosides B and C, Two Antifungal Sulfated Triterpene Glycosides from the Sea Cucumber Psolus patagonicus
Two new triterpene glycosides, patagonicosides B and C (2 and 3, resp.), together with the known patagonicoside A (1), have been isolated from the EtOH extract of the sea cucumber Psolus patagonicus.Expand
