Scytonemin is a 544-Da hydrophobic pigment that can absorb UV-A radiation. It is present in cyanobacterial sheaths and is thought… Expand The cyanobacterial natural product scytonemin (1) functions as a sunscreen, absorbing harmful UV-A radiation. Using information… Expand Scytonemin is an ultraviolet radiation (UVR)-screening compound synthesized by some sheathed cyanobacteria exposed to high solar… Expand ABSTRACT The indole-alkaloid scytonemin is the most common and widespread sunscreen among cyanobacteria. Previous research has… Expand Chronic inflammatory diseases are associated with the persistent production of proinflammatory mediators and tissue hyperplasia… Expand Despite knowledge of the existence of the pigment called scytonemin for over 100 years, its structure has remained unsolved until… Expand Marine natural products provide a rich source of chemical diversity that can be used to design and develop new, potentially… Expand The UV-screening pigment scytonemin is found in many species of ensheathed cyanobacteria. Past work has shown that the pigment is… Expand A survey of 20 strains of cyanobacteria (belonging to 13 genera) isolated from habitats exposed to strong insolation revealed… Expand Abstract— The proposed photoprotective role of the UV‐A absorbing, extracellular pigment scytonemin was studied in the… Expand
