The effect of UV irradiation on the state of marine invertebrate larvae (a bivalve mollusk and a sea urchin) and human peripheral blood lymphocytes was investigated in the presence of mytilan, a polysaccharide isolated from the mussel Crenomytilus grayanus. This polysaccharide exhibited UV-protective activities in each of the tested model systems. The preincubation with mytilan markedly reduced the negative effects of UV irradiation: the viability of marine invertebrate larvae was enhanced, the… CONTINUE READING
