Summary: Caulerpin, an orange-red algal pigment possessing a unique bis-indole structure, has been found in 80% of the species of the green alga genus Caulerpa
. Caulerpin and the corresponding diacid have been shown to be plant growth regulators and posses various biological activities.
In the late 1990s the invasive algae Caulerpa
taxifolia was discovered in Carlsbad's Agua Hedionda Lagoon.
crispata that grouped most closely with Caulerpa
Such a success was achieved in California with the invasive alga Caulerpa
taxifolia, in which a variety of federal, state, local, and private agencies were able to quickly detect the initial introduction of this species in Agua Hedionda Lagoon and respond within 17 days to contain the spread of the algae and work toward its eradication (Anderson 2005).
