This is the first report of caulerpin from brown alga
"The brown alga
Laminaria ochroleuca forms complex structures called kelp forests, which are among the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the world.
In the present work an endophytic ascomycetes fungus Cladosporium uredinicola was isolated from the marine brown alga
Dictyota dichotoma and identified through molecular characterization.
Contents of soluble, cell-wall bound and exuded phlorotannins on the brown alga
Fucus vesiculosus, with implications on their ecological functions.
The brown alga
Colpomenia bullosa and the red alga Lomentaria catenata displayed significant larvicidal activity in 2.5% extracts.
Ecological and biochemical analyses of the brown alga
Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J.
For example, in a recent study by Arockiya et al., gold (Au) nanoparticles were synthesized using brown alga
Methoxybifurcarenone: an antifungal and antibacterial meroditerpenoid from the brown alga
Antioxidant capacities of phlorotannins extracted from the brown alga
It was abundant on Ulva, the brown alga
Sargassum and corallines, with population densities averaging 52 individuals/10 cm2 of substrate (Fraser et al.
For example the fucoidan from the brown alga
Saccharina cichorioides is 2, 4-disulfated 1, 3-a-L-fucan, while the fucoidan from Fucus evanescens contains blocks of a-1,3-fucooligosaccharides and a-1,4-fucooligosaccharides sulfated at the position 2 in fucose residues (42).
Similarly, crude extract and major secondary metabolites from the brown alga
Stypopodium zonale from two different places on the Brazilian littoral significantly deterred feeding by consumers, although with distinct effectiveness (Pereira et al., 2004).
