The protective effect of laver extract against the UVA- and UVB-induced damage in HaCaT cells


We investigated the protective effect of aqueous-methanol extract of laver (Porphyra yezoensis) against UV-induced damage in HaCaT cells. The laver extract exhibited strong UV absorbance at 300–360 nm. The cells irradiated with UVA or UVB in the presence of the extract exhibited higher viability than those irradiated without the extract. The protective… (More)
