The pigments of kelps (Ochrophyta) as part of the flexible response to highly variable marine environments

The results demonstrate the complexity of the influence of species-specific and environmental factors on pigment composition and reinforce that macroalgae cultivation systems may provide an interesting approach to optimize the production of some valuable metabolites.

Antiproliferative activity of marine brown algae-derived compounds: A review

Marine environment exploration has increased in the search for new compounds that may be attractive to the industrial field, especially for the development of drugs. Brown marine algae are part of

Fucoxanthin, a Marine-Derived Carotenoid from Brown Seaweeds and Microalgae: A Promising Bioactive Compound for Cancer Therapy

This review shows that fucoxanthin could be a promising compound for cancer therapy by acting on most of the classical hallmarks of tumor cells, and combined treatments of fucox anthin with usual anticancer treatments can support conventional therapeutic strategies by reducing drug resistance.

Seaweed’s Bioactive Candidate Compounds to Food Industry and Global Food Security

The nutritional value and concerns relating to seaweed consumption, and also how seaweed-derived compounds are already commercially explored and available in the food industry and the usage restrictions to safeguard them as safe food additives for human consumption are described.

The study of colouring-matters as described in the following paper requires the use of a somewhat special kind of chemistry and of spectroscopic instruments designed for the purpose, but yet it

II. On the supposed identity of biliverdin with chlorophyll, with remarks on the constitution of chlorophyll

It is shown that chlorophyll and biliverdin are quite distinct, and by proper treatment each may be obtained in a state of very approximate isolation, so far as coloured substances are concerned.
