Diversity, phenomenology and epidemiology of epiphytism in farmed Gracilaria chilensis (Rhodophyta) in northern Chile
TLDR
The most common epiphytes infecting the algal host Gracilaria chilensis on a farm in northern Chile were identified and their relative abundance and temporal variability were monitored. Expand
IDENTIFICATION OF CRYPTIC SPECIES IN THE LESSONIA NIGRESCENS COMPLEX (PHAEOPHYCEAE, LAMINARIALES) 1
TLDR
It is concluded that the name Lessonia nigrescens should not be used for the Chilean material and the new combination Lessonia spicata (Suhr) Santelices is proposed for the central lineage and Lessonia berteroana for the northern lineage. Expand
Phospholipases and Galactolipases Trigger Oxylipin‐Mediated Wound‐Activated Defence in the Red Alga Gracilaria chilensis against Epiphytes
TLDR
The immediate release of oxylipins can be seen as G. chilensis defence against epiphytes as well as the hydroxylated eicosanoids after wounding. Expand
Cultivation of Gigartina skottsbergii (Gigartinales, Rhodophyta): Recent advances and challenges for the future
TLDR
Biological results on sporulation, germination, sporeling growth and survivorship in laboratory, indoor tanks and field conditions, indicated that cultivation of this species is technically feasible, as spores can be seeded on ropes and other substrata. Expand
SPORE RELEASE IN ACROCHAETIUM SP. (RHODOPHYTA) IS BACTERIALLY CONTROLLED 1
TLDR
This first finding of AHL perception in a red alga confirms that AHL signalling is more widespread among eukaryotes than was thought until recently and indicated that bacterially generated N‐acyl‐homoserine‐lactones (AHLs) regulate spore release. Expand
Healing and regeneration responses in Gigartina skottsbergii (Rhodophyta, Gigartinales): optimization of vegetative propagation for cultivation
TLDR
The results demonstrated that excised tissues of G. skottsbergii were able to seal the exposed areas in approximately 20 days, by a wound healing process characterized by a re-differentiation of medullary cells into a normal cortex. Expand
IL-2 Protects Lupus-Prone Mice from Multiple End-Organ Damage by Limiting CD4−CD8− IL-17–Producing T Cells
TLDR
It is suggested that administration of IL-2 to lupus-prone mice protects against end-organ damage and suppresses inflammation by dually limiting IL-17–producing DN T cells and expanding Treg. Expand
SEX RATIO VARIATION IN THE LESSONIA NIGRESCENS COMPLEX (LAMINARIALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE): EFFECT OF LATITUDE, TEMPERATURE, AND MARGINALITY 1
TLDR
Results demonstrate that sex ratio seems to be mainly genetically determined and temperature can significantly modify it, and both species displayed an increased variation in sex ratio at the range limits. Expand
Up-Regulation of Lipoxygenase, Phospholipase, and Oxylipin-Production in the Induced Chemical Defense of the Red Alga Gracilaria chilensis against Epiphytes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an extract of an epiphyte-challenged alga can trigger a defense response and that neither jasmonic acid nor the algal metabolite prostaglandin E2 triggers comparable defense responses. Expand
LAMINARIOCOLAX SP. (PHAEOPHYCEAE) ASSOCIATED WITH GALL DEVELOPMENTS IN LESSONIA NIGRESCENS (PHAEOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
Results showed that galls affecting natural populations of L. nigrescens were associated with the infection by a filamentous brown algal endophyte of the genus Laminariocolax, and identification at the species level of the endophytes infecting Lessonia awaits further studies. Expand
