Antioxidant properties of edible sea weed from the Northern Coast of the Sea of Japan

Introduction. New natural antioxidants remain a relevant research task of food science. Natural antioxidants neutralize free radicals in food systems, as well as in human body. The antioxidant

Antioxidant and Antidiabetic Activity of Algae

The current review concentrates on the role of various secondary bioactive substances found naturally in algae and their potential as antioxidants and antidiabetic materials, as well as the urgent need to apply these substances in the pharmaceutical industry.

Immunomodulatory and Antitumoral Activity of Gold Nanoparticles Synthesized by Red Algae Aqueous Extracts

The results obtained confirmed the obtainment of gold nanoparticles with significant potential as immunotherapeutic agents and the therapeutic potential of these nanoparticles could be higher than that of inertgold nanoparticles loaded with bioactive molecules since the former would allow for higher accumulation into the targeted tissue.

Edible algae allergenicity – a short report

The use of seaweed and algal derived products in the food industry has grown rapidly in recent times. Major areas of expansion have been in Western countries where algae derived commodities are being

Biological activities of secondary metabolites from Turbinaria triquetra (Phaeophyceae), Hypnea cornuta (Florideophyceae), and Ulva prolifera (Ulvophyceae) methanolic extracts

With respect to the potential natural resource in the marine environment, marine macroalgae or seaweeds are recognized to have health impacts. Three endemic marine algae, Turbinaria



Phytochemical evaluation of two brown seaweeds from Muttom and Rasthacaud coasts of Tamil Nadu, India.

Chloroform was found to be the better solvent for phytochemical screening and showed better result in the alga Padina boergesnii in chloroform extract.

In vitro antitumor activity of Gracilaria corticata (a red alga) against Jurkat and molt-4 human cancer cell lines

The water crude extract of red alga G. corticata had significant anticancer activity and it might be a good candidate for further investigations in order to develop a natural compound as an anticancer agent which can be used for the production of potential anticancer drug and novel pharmaceutical leads.

In vitro potential activity of some seaweeds as antioxidants and inhibitors of diabetic enzymes

Marine algae contain bioactive compounds, e.g., polysaccharides, pigments, proteins, lipids, peptides, minerals and vitamins, which could play an important role in the control of diabetes and anti-hypertensive activities.

Valuing Bioactive Lipids from Green, Red and Brown Macroalgae from Aquaculture, to Foster Functionality and Biotechnological Applications

The results reveal to be species-specific, namely U. rigida displayed the lowest atherogenicity and thrombogenicity indices, and F. vesiculosus lipid extracts displayed the highest inhibitory concentration in the free radical scavenging antioxidant assays.

Antioxidant activities of extracts and flavonoid compounds from Oxytropis falcate Bunge

This is the first report of antioxidant activity in this plant and the antioxidant activities of the two dihydrochalcones were very weak.

An overview on red algae bioactive compounds and their pharmaceutical applications

The polyphenolic extracts of Laurencia undulate, Melanothamnus afaqhusainii and Solieria robusta extract show anti-inflammatory effects against multiple genera of devastating fungi and polysaccharides derived from red algae are important tool for formulation of drugs delivery system via nanotechnology.

Effects of different pretreatments on flavonoids and antioxidant activity of Dryopteris erythrosora leave

The best pretreatment for preserving the flavonoids was to first dry the plant material in the shade and then complete the drying process in an oven at 75°C, which showed relatively stronger antioxidant activity.

In-vitro Anti-inflammatory and Anti-arthritic Activity of Oryza sativa Var. Joha Rice (An Aromatic Indigenous Rice of Assam)
