Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Potential Applications of Sargassum fulvellum
The present review focuses on the biological activity of S. fulvellum as reported by previous publications, which include antioxidant, anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, antidiabetic, and anticancer effects. Expand


Identification of chemical structure and free radical scavenging activity of diphlorethohydroxycarmalol isolated from a brown alga, Ishige okamurae.
Diphlorethohydroxycarmalol was found to scavenge DPPH and alkyl radicals more effectively than the commercial antioxidant, ascorbic acid, and could be useful in cosmetics, foods, and pharmaceuticals. Expand
Potent alpha-glucosidase inhibitors purified from the red alga Grateloupia elliptica.
Bromophenols of G. elliptica have potential as natural nutraceuticals to prevent diabetes mellitus because of their high alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity. Expand
Diphlorethohydroxycarmalol isolated from Ishige okamurae, a brown algae, a potent alpha-glucosidase and alpha-amylase inhibitor, alleviates postprandial hyperglycemia in diabetic mice.
Results indicated that DPHC might be a potent inhibitor for alpha-glucosidase and alpha-amylase as well as it delays absorption of dietary carbohydrates. Expand
Synthesis of xanthone derivatives with extended π-systems as α-glucosidase inhibitors: Insight into the probable binding mode
A series of novel xanthone derivatives with extended pi-systems, that is, benzoxanthones 2-4, and their structurally perturbed analogs 5-9 have been designed and synthesized as alpha-glucosidaseExpand

Marine pharmacology research during 2005-2006 was truly global in nature, involving investigators from 32 countries, and the United States, and contributed 183 marine chemical leads to the research pipeline aimed at the discovery of novel therapeutic agents. Expand
Flavour compounds of Lavandula angustifolia L. to use in food manufacturing: Comparison of three different extraction methods
Abstract Sixty compounds of Lavandula angustifolia L . cultivated in Friuli Venezia Giulia (North-East Italy) were identified and quantified by GC-MS and GC-FID from essential oils obtained by meansExpand
New records of Myelophycus cavus (Scytosiphonaceae, Phaeophyceae) in Korea and the taxonomic position of the genus on the basis of a plastid DNA phylogeny
Supporting the recent classification of five families in the Ectocarpales, data of plastid DNA sequences show that Myelophycus consistently formed a monophyletic clade with a maximum support together with the Scytosiphonaceae. Expand
Anti-photoaging activity and inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) by marine red alga, Corallina pilulifera methanol extract
Abstract Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a key component in photoaging of the skin due to exposure to ultraviolet A, appear to be increased by UV-irradiation-associated generation of reactiveExpand
Genistein, a soy isoflavone, is a potent α‐glucosidase inhibitor
Genistein was shown to be a reversible, slow‐binding, non‐competitive inhibitor of yeast α‐glucosidase with a K i value of 5.7×10−8 M when the enzyme mixture was pretreated with genistein. Expand
