Abstract The function as an antioxidant seems to represent the central principle of chemopreventive activity of carotenoids against cancer initiation and promotion. The aim of this study was to clarify whether or not extrachloroplastic-accumulated secondary carotenoids (astaxanthin, canthaxanthin and echinenone) of Haematococcus lacustris [Girod] Rostafinski exhibit a similar antioxidative activity in protecting the cell of this green alga from photo-oxidative damage. In vivo experiments were… CONTINUE READING
