EVALUATION OF RECOVERABLE FUNCTIONAL LIPID COMPONENTS OF SEVERAL BROWN SEAWEEDS (PHAEOPHYTA) FROM JAPAN WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO FUCOXANTHIN AND FUCOSTEROL CONTENTS 1
Fucoxanthin (Fx) and fucosterol (Fs) are characteristic lipid components of brown seaweeds that afford several health benefits to humans. This article describes the quantitative evaluation of lipidsExpand

Angiotensin I Converting Enzyme Inhibitory Peptides Derived from Phycobiliproteins of Dulse Palmaria palmata
We examined the inhibitory activity of angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) in protein hydrolysates from dulse, Palmaria palmata. The proteins extracted from dulse were mainly composed ofExpand

Numerical analysis of two-arm spiral antennas printed on a finite-size dielectric substrate
A two-arm spiral antenna (SA) printed on a dielectric substrate backed by a conducting plane is analyzed under the condition that the dielectric substrate has a finite side length of L. The analysisExpand

Regulation of Sorus Formation by Auxin in Laminariales Sporophyte
Young sporophytes of Laminaria japonica Areshoug were cultured in six indole-acetic acid (IAA) concentrations (0, 10−8, 10−7, 10−6, 10−5, 10−4 M) to examine the effect of auxin on growth. The effectsExpand

Successful sporophyte regeneration from protoplasts of Undaria pinnatifida (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae)
Abstract Developmental studies of protoplasts isolated from Undaria pinnatifida were carried out in the laboratory at 5, 10, 15 and 18°C. The whole life cycle was completed for the first time fromExpand
