Seaweeds have a high capacity to bind trace metals. Seaweeds are generally considered as the best bioindicator of aquatic bodies for nutrients as well as heavy metals. The use of organisms like algae to identify areas of trace metal contamination is attractive as these organisms concentrate metals from the ambient water. Accumulation of cadmium, cobalt,(More)
Crude fucoidan from Sargassum plagiophyllum extracted from blade and purified by Q-Sepharose fast flow anion-exchange chromatography and three fucoidan fractions were obtained. Maximum sulphate containing fucoidan fraction was considered as purified fucoidan and purity was checked with agarose gel electrophoresis. The monosaccharides of purified fucoidan(More)
This study was undertaken to develop an efficient single step chromatographic method for purification of C-phycocyanin (CPC) from species of Oscillatoria tenuis. Purification of CPC involves a multistep treatment of the crude extract by precipitation with ammonium sulphate, followed by gel filtration chromatography. Pure CPC was finally obtained from O.(More)
Ulvan, a sulphated polysaccharide has been extracted from the green seaweed, Ulva lactuca. Results showed that ulvan pocesses 59.5% sugars, 16.9% sulphate, 19.5% uronic acid of viscosity of solution is 21(mPa). Functional groups of ulvan have been identified with IR spectrum. The efficacy of ulvan was tested against experimentally induced fibrosarcoma in(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze if the 2-pyrrolidinone rich fraction of Brassica oleracea var. capitata exhibiting antioxidant and in vitro anticancer activities. 2-Pyrrolidinone is an active compound present in Brassica oleracea var. capitata. Our findings explored the potential use of 2-pyrrolidinone in cancer treatment. This compound was identified(More)
The methanolic, aqueous and petroleum ether extracts of the root tubers of Gloriosa superba were studied for antibacterial, antifungal and mutagenic activities. Results showed that the petroleum ether extracts were highly active against the Gram-negative bacteria, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris and Salmonella typhi at 50 μg/ml and active at 1000 μg/ml(More)
