Anti-obesity effect and protection of liver-kidney functions by Codium
fragile sulphated polysaccharide on high fat diet induced obese rats.
Caulerpin was also isolated from other algae: green codium
decorticatum , Halimeda incrossate  and red Laurencia majuscule , Hypnea concornis , Caloglossa leprieuri [9, 10] and Chondia armata .
'Researchers from the University of Santo Tomas found that polysaccharides extracted from Codium
species, locally known as pukpuklo [a seasonally available seaweed], are effective against cancer cells and destructive enzymes associated with cancer metastasis,' said a press statement released by DOST.
Environmental tolerance of the two invasive species Ciona intestinalis and Codium
fragile: their invasive potential along a temperate coast.
Ross Dizon Vasquez, evaluated the inhibitory potential of the polysaccharides fractions isolated from Codium
Stenophagous, herbivorous sea slugs attack desiccation-prone, green algal hosts (Codium
spp.): indirect evidence of prey-stress models (PSMs)?
These green algae had been also found as epiphytic, growing on Codium
decorticatum (Woodward) M.

Photosynthesis in Codium
fragile (Chlorophyta) from a Nova Scotia estuary: Responses to desiccation and hyposalinity.
The rates for 0.25%, 0.5%, and 2.5% concentrations of Codium
fragile methanol extract were [greater than or equal to]79.4% at 12, 24, and 48 h; this extract was considered non-larvicidal (Table 1).
, Caulerpa and Gayralia contain ulvan-type heteropolysaccharides (Patel, 2012, Wang, Wang, Wu, & Liu, 2014, Perez et al., 2016).
Similarly, crystalline Ag nanoparticles were biosynthesized from Codium
capitatum to produce spherical and cubic nanoparticles ranging in size from 3 to 44 nm, with a mean particle size of 30 nm .
