Non-methylene-interrupted fatty acids from marine invertebrates: Occurrence, characterization and biological properties.
The most promising FA topoisomerase I inhibitors to date seem to be the long-chain Delta5,9 FA, which is probably partially responsible for the toxicity displayed by some of the Delta5-9 FA towards cancer cell lines and also displayed interesting antiplasmodial activity. Expand
Fatty acids from lipids of marine organisms: molecular biodiversity, roles as biomarkers, biologically active compounds, and economical aspects.
This review of marine lipidology deals with recent advances in the field of fatty acids since the end of the 1990s, mainly developing biomarkers of trophic chains in marine ecosystems and of chemotaxonomic interest, reporting new structures, especially those with biological activities or biosynthesis interest.

Study of the chemical composition of edible red macroalgae Grateloupia turuturu from Brittany (France)
The study of seasonal variations of the red seaweed Grateloupia turuturu showed that the best period to collect the seaweed for food use is between February and June. Expand
Influence of season on the lipid content and fatty acid profiles of three tilapia species (Oreochromis niloticus, O. macrochir and Tilapia rendalli) from Madagascar
The results show that wild tilapias from tropical lakes of the Madagascar highlands possess beneficial properties and therefore contribute significantly of the n−3 fatty acids intake of the local population diet. Expand
Lipids and fatty acids in muscle, liver and skin of three edible fish from the Senegalese coast: Sardinella maderensis, Sardinella aurita and Cephalopholis taeniops.
Lipid content and fatty acid composition were determined in three species of edible fish caught in Senegalese waters during the upwelling season (January, 1993) and the percentages of PUFA found in the fish studied were very similar to those in fish used commercially as sources ofPUFA. Expand
Improvement of lipid and phospholipid recoveries from sardine (Sardina pilchardus) viscera using industrial proteases
Enzymatic hydrolysis of sardine viscera by three broad spectrum proteases was investigated using the pHstat method (24 h, pH 8, 50 °C). After hydrolysis, three fractions (sludge, aqueous phase andExpand
Fatty Acids in Liver, Muscle and Gonad of three Tropical Rays including Non-Methylene-Interrupted Dienoic Fatty Acids
The results show that muscle, liver and gonad of rays can provide high amounts of essential PUFA, specially DHA, for direct human nutrition or the food processing industry and describes the occurrence of unusual NMID FA in all tissues studied. Expand
Seasonal composition of lipids, fatty acids, and sterols in the edible red alga Grateloupia turuturu
Composition of lipids, sterols, fatty acids (FA), and phospholipids in the edible Rhodophyta Grateloupia turuturu from Britanny, France, was investigated over four seasons in order to identifyExpand
Demospongic Acids Revisited
The Δ5,9 fatty acids appear to be a particular type of non-methylene-interrupted fatty acids (NMA FAs), which have also been observed in various marine sources with a large range of chain-lengths and from some terrestrial plants with short acyl chains. Expand
New unsaturated long-chain fatty acids in the phospholipids from the axinellida spongesTrikentrion loeve andPseudaxinella cf.Lunaecharta
In order to identify new structures and especially those involved as biosynthetic intermediates, the fatty acid composition of whole phospholipids from two Senegalese marine sponges from the orderExpand
