An aqueous marine-sulfated polysaccharide (MSP) extract, prepared from the green macroalga Ulva armoricana, was tested as an antibacterial compound against 42 bacterial strains and isolates found in livestock animals. Both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria growths were affected. The most susceptible pathogens were Pasteurella multocida, Mannheimia(More)
OBJECTIVES The green seaweed Ulva sp. contains a large amount of ulvans, a family of sulphated polysaccharides. The present study was designed to investigate in rats the antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like effects of a hydrophilic extract of Ulva sp. (MSP) containing about 45% of ulvans. METHODS After a 14-day administration of MSP at doses of 10, 20 and(More)
A series of intercalated and exfoliated nanocomposites montmorillonite-ulvan was prepared. Ulvan, extracted from the green algae, is a water-soluble polysaccharide biopolymer. Depending on the drying process, air or freeze drying, ulvan were inserted in the interlayer space or adsorbed on the both sides of inorganic layers. The crystallization of water(More)
