Trends in the Discovery of New Marine Natural Products from Invertebrates over the Last Two Decades – Where and What Are We Bioprospecting?
TLDR
The present study provides information to future bioprospecting efforts addressing previously unexplored taxonomic groups and/or regions and highlights how marine invertebrates may become highly valuable in the ongoing search for new drugs from the sea.
Cnidarians as a Source of New Marine Bioactive Compounds—An Overview of the Last Decade and Future Steps for Bioprospecting
TLDR
An overview of some of the most promising marine bioactive compounds from a therapeutic point of view isolated from cnidarians in the first decade of the 21st century is presented.
Wavelength dependence of biological damage induced by UV radiation on bacteria
TLDR
Analysis of biological effects of UV radiation of different wavelengths revealed that survival under UVA, UVB and UVC wavelengths was best explained by DSB, oxidative damage to lipids, and intracellular ROS levels, respectively.
Bacterial Extracellular Enzymatic Activity in Globally Changing Aquatic Ecosystems
TLDR
The present paper reviews the currently available information on environmental regulation of bacterial extracellular enzymatic activity in aquatic environments and discusses the potential implications of direct and indirect effects global changes on heterotrophic bacterial communities and on the processes of organic matter recycling.
Phage Therapy and Photodynamic Therapy: Low Environmental Impact Approaches to Inactivate Microorganisms in Fish Farming Plants
TLDR
The aim of this review is to briefly present the typical fish farming diseases and their threats and discuss the present state of chemotherapy to inactivate microorganisms in fish farming plants as well as to examine the new environmentally friendly approaches to control fish infection namely phage therapy and photodynamic antimicrobial therapy.
Photodynamic inactivation of Penicillium chrysogenum conidia by cationic porphyrins.
TLDR
Cationic PSs 1a and 1b might be promising anti-fungal PDI agents with potential applications in phytosanitation, biofilm control, bioremediation, and wastewater treatment.
Applicability of photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy as an alternative to inactivate fish pathogenic bacteria in aquaculture systems.
TLDR
The results indicate that aPDT can be regarded as a new approach to control fish infections in aquaculture systems, but it is clearly more difficult to inactivate the complex natural bacterial communities of Aquaculture waters than pure cultures of bacteria isolated from aquacculture systems.
Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis and Barcoded Pyrosequencing Reveal Unprecedented Archaeal Diversity in Mangrove Sediment and Rhizosphere Samples
TLDR
This study shows that rhizosphere microhabitats of R. mangle and L. racemosa, common plants in subtropical mangroves located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, hosted distinct archaeal assemblages, suggesting that roots of both mangrove species influence the sediment Archaeal community.
Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy: Study of Bacterial Recovery Viability and Potential Development of Resistance after Treatment
TLDR
The results suggest that aPDT using Tri-Py+-Me-PF represents a promising approach to efficiently destroy bacteria since after a single treatment these microorganisms do not recover their viability and after ten generations of partially photosensitized cells neither of the bacteria develop resistance to the photodynamic process.
Taking Root: Enduring Effect of Rhizosphere Bacterial Colonization in Mangroves
TLDR
It is found that mangrove roots appear to influence bacterial abundance and composition in the rhizosphere, and this study indicates that nursery conditions and early microbial colonization patterns of the replants are key factors that should be considered during reforestation projects.
