The red alga Asparagopsis taxiformis (Rhodophyta, Bonnemaisoniaceae) has been shown to produce a large diversity of halogenated volatile organic compounds, with one to four carbons. As the distribution of this alga may expand worldwide, we implemented a research program that aims to understand the functions of its specialized metabolome in marine ecosystems. Phytochemical investigations performed on A. taxiformis gametophyte stages from the Indian Ocean revealed two new highly brominated… Expand
Unique Polybrominated Hydrocarbons from the Australian Endemic Red Alga Ptilonia australasica.
TLDR
Ptilones A-C and australasol A show unique 4-ethyl-5-methylenecyclopent-2-enone and 2-methyl-6-vinyl-4H-pyran-4-one skeletons not previously reported in algal metabolites, and Ptilone A displayed the most potent cytotoxicity against the human prostate cancer PC3 cells. Expand
Chemogeography of the red macroalgae Asparagopsis: metabolomics, bioactivity, and relation to invasiveness
TLDR
The metabolomic approach partly discriminates macroalgal populations from various geographic origins, and the production of chemical defenses assessed by the bioactivity assay does not match the macroalga genetic lineage and seems more driven by the environment. Expand
Brominated molecules from marine algae and their pharmacological importance (Chapter 13)
Abstract Macroalgae or seaweeds are the most abundant marine species occurring all over the world in all kinds of habitats. For several decades, the significance of organic metabolites isolated fromExpand
Chemical defense against microfouling by allelopathic active metabolites of Halymenia floresii (Rhodophyta)
During the experimental cultivation of the red alga Halymenia floresii under Integrated MultiTrophic Aquaculture (IMTA), the establishment of opportunist green algae and the colonization of sessileExpand
Chemical and genetic differences between Hawaiian lineages of the alga Asparagopsis taxiformis
TLDR
Analysis of metabolite profiles showed that lineage 4 could be readily differentiated from the other two lineages, lineage 1 and lineage 2, by its chemical profile, and several halogenated metabolites characteristic of lineage 4 were also identified. Expand
Genetic and biochemical reconstitution of bromoform biosynthesis in Asparagopsis lends insights into seaweed ROS enzymology.
TLDR
The ROS production-haloperoxidase enzymology that is described here advances seaweed biology and biochemistry by providing the molecular basis for decades worth of physiological observations in ROS and halogenated natural product biosyntheses. Expand
The interaction between the proliferating macroalga Asparagopsis taxiformis and the coral Astroides calycularis induces changes in microbiome and metabolomic fingerprints
TLDR
Significant changes were detected among both associated microbial communities, the interspecific differences decreasing with stronger host interaction, and the contact interaction with the coral induced a change in the macroalgal metabolomic fingerprint with a significant increase of its bioactivity against the marine bacteria Aliivibrio fischeri.

Macroalgal diversity for sustainable biotechnological development in French tropical overseas territories
Abstract This review focuses on the diversity of French tropical overseas macroalgae and their biotechnological applications. After listing the specific diversity, i.e. 641 species in French AntillesExpand
Minireview: algal natural compounds and extracts as antifoulants
TLDR
This minireview has summarized and evaluated antifouling compounds isolated and identified from macroalgae and microalgae between January 2010 and June 2016 and discussed the need to conduct more chemical ecology based research in relatively less explored areas with high algal biodiversity like Southeast Asia. Expand
A recent survey of naturally occurring organohalogen compounds
TLDR
This review presents the 114 discovered organohalogens from natural sources in the year 2014, which include compounds from both marine and terrestrial organisms, such as algae, sponges, corals, tunicates, bryozoans, fungi, bacteria, cyanobacteria and plants. Expand

Antimicrobial potential and seasonality of red algae collected from the southwest coast of India tested against shrimp, human and phytopathogens
TLDR
In the present study, methanol was found to be the best solvent for extracting antimicrobial metabolites from dried samples rather than fresh, and suggested that lipophilic compound which was primarily composed of pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid, pentadecanoic acid and octadecanoi acid might have functional role in the chemical defence against microbial invasion.
