We assessed the antioxidant activity of crude extracts from 24 rhodophyte species from Brittany coasts using three complementary methods (2,2-diphenyl-1-picryhydrazyl, reducing activity, and b-carotene-linoleic acid system). We also examined phenolic contents. Cytotoxic activities were determined with three different cancer cell lines. Four species (Aglaothamnion pseudobyssoides, Furcellaria fastigiata, Polysiphonia lanosa, and Heterosiphonia plumosa) had high antioxidant activity and high… Expand

Apoptosis-inducing activities of Halopteris scoparia L. Sauvageau (Brown algae) on cancer cells and its biosafety and antioxidant properties
TLDR
Findings suggest that, considering that it had not led to irritation and toxicity in vivo, edible H. scoparia is a natural antioxidant and its apoptotic/cytotoxic activities can potentially be used against human cancers. Expand
Valuable compounds in macroalgae extracts.
TLDR
The results point to the potential interest of the use of Phaeophyta species as food additives, due to their potent antiradical activities, and especially highlights the importance of F. spiralis in the food chain of Mediterranean countries. Expand
The bioactivity and natural products of Scottish seaweeds
ii Abstract Seaweed has traditionally been used in Scotland and other countries both as food and for medicinal purposes, which has led to seaweed being investigated for their natural product content.Expand
Screening of proteins based on macro-algae from West Java coast in Indonesian marine as a potential anti-aging agent
TLDR
Screening and extracting of aqueous tropical marine alga protein as a potential source for an antioxidant agent has been done by using 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl scavenging method, and protein contents have been determined by Lowry method. Expand
Antioxidative and antimicrobial activities of intertidal seaweeds and possible effects of abiotic factors on these bioactivities
TLDR
An effect of abiotic factors on the antioxidative and antimicrobial activities of intertidal seaweeds in the wild is suggested, and may allow for selective gathering high-activity species in terms of algal species and local environmental conditions. Expand

TLDR
The antiproliferative efficacy of these algal extracts were positively correlated with the total polyphenol contents (p<0.05), suggesting a causal link related to extract content of kelp phlorotannins and dulse polyphenols including mycosporine-like amino acids and phenolic acids. Expand
