In the present study, three kinds of phlorotannins, marine algal polyphenol, were isolated from a brown alga Ecklonia cava, and their inhibitory effect on melanogenesis as well as the protective effect against photo-oxidative stress induced by UV-B radiation was investigated. The effect on melanogenesis was evaluated via the inhibitory effects of tyrosinase(More)
We investigated the composition of essential oil from fingered citron (Citrus medica L. var. sarcodactylis) (FCEO) peels by GC-MS and its anti-inflammatory effects on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) - stimulated mouse macrophage (RAW 264.7) cells. Fifteen compounds, representing 98.97% of the essential oil, were tentatively identified; the main constituents were(More)
Gillisia sp. strain CBA3202, which belongs to the family Flavobacteriaceae, was isolated from sand of the seashore on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. The draft genome of Gillisia sp. CBA3202 contains 2,981,404 bp with a G+C content of 34.9%. This is the second genome sequence of the Gillisia strains.
The present study was designed to evaluate the molecular mechanisms of fucoxanthin against melanoma cell lines (B16F10 cells). Fucoxanthin reduced the proliferation of B16F10 cells in a dose-dependent manner accompanied by the induction of cell cycle arrest during the G(0)/G(1) phase and apoptosis. Fucoxanthin-induced G(0)/G(1) arrest was associated with a(More)
The blooms of toxic phototrophic microorganisms, such as microalgae and cyanobacteria, which are typically found in freshwater and marine environments, are becoming more frequent and problematic in aquatic systems. Due to accumulation of toxic algae, harmful algal blooms (HABs) exert negative effects on aquatic systems. Therefore, rapid detection of harmful(More)
Heterocapsa circularisquama (Dinophyceae), a red tide dinoflagellate, is toxic to bivalve molluscs such as the pearl oyster (Pinctada fucata), but no harmful effects of this alga on fish have been observed so far. We found that 7 strains of H. circularisquama showed hemolytic activities toward rabbit erythrocytes in a cell-density dependent manner, but to(More)
Strain LHWP2(T), a novel, aerobic, budding, motile and ovoid bacterium belonging to the phylum Planctomycetes, was isolated from a dead ark clam (Scapharca broughtonii) from the south coast of Korea. Strain LHWP2(T) grew optimally at 30 °C, in the presence of 4% (w/v) NaCl, and at pH 7. The predominant cellular fatty acids were C16:0, C18:1ω7c and/or(More)
Protein derived the marine Chlorella ellipsoidea was hydrolyzed using different proteases (papain, trypsin, pepsin and α-chymotrypsin) for production of antioxidative peptide, and the antioxidant activities of their hydrolysates were investigated using free radical scavenging assay by electron spin resonance spin-trapping technique. Among the hydrolysates,(More)
Cochlodinium polykrikoides, a harmful red tide dinoflagellate, is highly toxic to fish, but the toxic mechanism is still unknown. Recent study has suggested that C. polykrikoides generates reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as superoxide anion (O(2)(-)) and hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)), and the ROS-mediated ichthyotoxicity has been proposed. In this study,(More)
A novel Gram-negative, motile, and ovoid-shaped strain, LHWP3T, which belonged to the family Planctomycetaceae in the phylum Planctomycetes, was isolated from a dead ark clam Scapharca broughtonii collected during a mass mortality event on the south coast of Korea. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the isolate was(More)
