Seasonal changes in photoprotectors and antioxidant capacity of the fucoid macroalga Cystoseira
Among the crude ethanol extracts, those obtained from Cystoseira
barbata (Ochrophyta) against V.
Overall, Zostera marina was most abundant (and found only on the natural habitat), followed by Pteiygophora californica, Cystoseira
spp., Macrocystispyrifera, and Laminaria spp.
Studies on the anti-DENV effects revealed that SPs isolated from Gymnogongrus grifithsiae, Cryptonemia crenulata (Rhodophyta), Stoechospermum marginatum, Cystoseira
indica (Phaeophyta) and C.
The preference of heavy metal accumulation differed according to the degree of water pollution and the macroalgal species; with a particular preference of Cu, Zn and Pb by Corallina elongata, of Mn by Jania adhaerens and of Cd by Cystoseira
corniculata and Dictyota dichotoma.

indica) from Iran," Journal of Applied Phycology, vol.
Gangadhar et al., "Isololiolide, a carotenoid metabolite isolated from the brown alga Cystoseira
tamariscifolia, is cytotoxic and able to induce apoptosis in hepatocarcinoma cells through caspase-3 activation, decreased Bcl-2 levels, increased p53 expression and PARP cleavage," Phytomedicine, vol.
Giant kelp canopies dominate the area, whereas other subcanopy, folios, and turf species are limited (Eisenia, Laminaria, Cystoseira
, erect coralline, other fleshy red algae).
In this study we isolated isololiolide from Cystoseira
tamariscifolia for the first time.
(2014) sugieren que el aumento de compuestos fenolicos observados en Cystoseira
tamariscifolia (Hudson, 1950) estaria asociado a su exposicion a alta iluminacion y a radiacion UV.
Like the lines on a hand, the algae appear to depart from a few stronger branches to dance rhizomatically: perhaps both the open hand (a well-known symbol in Indian national iconography-think of Le Corbusier's work at Chandigarh) and the Cystoseira
foeniculacea stretch themselves outwards to identify magnetically with the stars.
