In Brazil, one of the probable reasons for failure in attempts at macroalgal mariculture is the lack of previous studies under controlled conditions. Gracilaria caudata is an important marine red alga which is locally exploited for the production of agar. In this study the aim was to compare in vitro growth rates, pigment content, and photosynthesis in… (More)
The Atlantic Rainforest does not have a uniform physiognomy, its relief determines different environmental conditions that define the composition of its flora and fauna. Within this ecosystem, bromeliads that form tanks with their leaves hold water reservoirs throughout the year, maintaining complex food chains, based mainly on autotrophic and heterotrophic… (More)
Oral delivery of proteins is still a challenge in the pharmaceutical field. Nanoparticles are among the most promising carrier systems for the oral delivery of proteins by increasing their oral bioavailability. However, most of the existent data regarding nanosystems for oral protein delivery is from in vitro studies, lacking in vivo experiments to evaluate… (More)
