Natural antioxidants found in marine macroalgae are bioactive compounds known to play an important role in the prevention of diseases associated with aging cells protecting them against the oxidative damage. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant and cytotoxic activity of ethanolic extracts of two species of red seaweeds, Amansia(More)
Lectins are sugar-binding proteins widely distributed in nature with many biological functions. Although many lectins have a remarkable biotechnological potential, some of them can be cytotoxic. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the toxicity of five lectins, purified from seeds of different species of Canavalia genus. In order to determine the(More)
As described in the literature, Solieria filiformis lectin (SfL) from the marine red alga S. filiformis was found to have antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects. In this study, we characterized two SfL variants, SfL-1 and SfL-2, with molecular mass of 27,552Da and 27,985Da, respectively. The primary structures of SfL-1 and SfL-2 consist of four(More)
Lectins are (glycol) proteins that bind specifically and reversibly to carbohydrates. These proteins, in particular those from plant, are important tools in glycobiochemistry and glycobiology. Canavalia bonariensis Lindl is a species of Leguminosae family, Papilionoideae subfamily, tribe Phaseoleae, subtribe Diocleinae, native of the southern region of the(More)
