Objective: To reveal the antibacterial, cytotoxicity, larvicidal potentials of Dictyota ciliata J. Agardh (D. ciliata). Methods: Phytochemical, antibacterial screening, cytotoxicity and larvicidal properties of the D. ciliata extracts were carried out according to standard methods. Cytotoxicity and larvicidal potentials were analyzed by means of computerized probit analysis program. Results: The phytochemical screening showed the presence of steroids, alkaloids, phenolic groups, cardiac… Expand

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
Cytotoxic Potentials of Red Alga, Laurencia brandenii Collected from the Indian Coast
Red algae Laurencia brandenii from the southwest coast of India was extracted and fractionated in column chromatography using different solvent systems and revealed that the main acid was 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z)- (49.75 %) followed by n-Hexadecanoic Acid (14.24 %) which might have functional role in biological activity.
