To assess whether vertebrates can acquire, from their diet, ultraviolet radiation-absorbing mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs), medaka fish and hairless mice were maintained for 150 and 130 days, respectively, on diets either including Mastocarpus stellatus (rich in MAAs) or the same diets without this red alga. In medaka, the MAAs palythine and asterina-330, present in trace quantities in the diet with added M. stellatus, were present in significantly greater quantities in the eyes of fish… Expand
