BACKGROUND Excessive pro-inflammatory cytokine production from activated microglia contributes to neurodegenerative diseases, thus, microglial inactivation may delay the progress of neurodegeneration by attenuating the neuroinflammation. Among 5 selected brown algae, we found the highest antioxidant and anti-neuroinflammatory activities from Myagropsis(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to investigate anti-inflammatory effect of ethanolic extract of Myagropsis myagroides (EMM) in the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages and the phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA)-induced ear edema in mice, and to clarify its underlying molecular mechanisms. METHODS The levels of nitric oxide (NO),(More)
Sargassum, a genus of brown algae (Phaeophyceae) in the Sargassaceae family, comprises approximately 400 species in the world. Among them, Sargassum serratifolium has been reported to have high level of meroterpenoids, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective activities. This study investigated the anti-inflammatory mechanism of(More)
Hyperpigmentation is an increased deposition of melanin in the skin. The effects of ethanolic extract from the brown alga Sargassum serratifolium (ESS) on melanogenic protein expressions in B16F10 mouse melanoma cells were examined to elucidate its hypopigmenting properties. ESS remarkably reduced melanin synthesis in α-melanocyte stimulating hormone(More)
