Pheromones in marine algae: A technical approach
The Grob-Hersch extraction device, which is described here, avoids adverse factors for the biological materials such as strong water currents, rising gas bubbles or chemical solvents, and the formation of sea-water spray is greatly reduced. Expand
Absolute configuration and enantiomer composition of hormosirene
trans-l-(IE,3Z-Hexadienyl)-2-vinylcyclopropane (hormosirene) is the sexual pheromone common to the seaweeds Colpomenia peregrina, Durvillaea potatorum, D. antarctica, D. willana, Hormosira banksii,Expand
The oxylipin chemistry of attraction and defense in brown algae and diatoms.
This review covers the research on brown algal pheromones from the first structural characterisation of an active principle in 1971 to the recent detailed insight into their biosynthesis. DevelopmentExpand

Differentiation of algal chemoreceptors. A comparative receptor study with two seaweed pairs: Cutleria multifida/Syringoderma phinneyi and Desmarestia aculeata/Ectocarpus siliculosus (Phacophyceae).
Inhibition of chemotaxis by ectocarpene is observed in Ectocarpus males in the presence of desmarestene, the lure of Desmarestia, and related parapheromones, which indicates complex interactions between different species of algae sharing a common habitat, in their defense of living space. Expand
Absolute Configuration of Multifidene and Viridiene, the Sperm Releasing and Attracting Pheromones of Brown Algae†
The absolute configurations of the two algal pheromones multifidene 1 and viridiene 2 were determined as (+)-(3S, 4S)-3-[(Z)-1-butenyl]-4-vinylcyclopentene and (+)-(3R, 4S)-3-[(1Z)-1,Expand
Studies on the life history of Syringoderma phinneyi sp. nov. (Phaeophyceae)

Synthesis of (+/-)-Desmarestene and (+/-)-Viridiene, the 2 Sperm Releasing and Attracting Pheromones from the Brown-Algae Desmarestia-Aculeata and Desmarestia-Viridis
Desmarestene 1 6-(1Z,3-butadienyl)-1,4-cycloheptadiene and viridiene 3cis-3-(1Z, 3-butadienyl)-4-vinylcyclopentene are chemical messengers for male gametes of the brown algae Desmarestia aculeate andExpand
Receptor Specificity and Threshold Concentration in Chemotaxis of the Phaeophyte Cutleria multifida
A tentative model is presented, which takes into account the evidence, that unpolar, but highly polarizable functional groups in the correct spatial arrangement are necessary for maximal mutual interaction. Expand
