• degradation
  • In view of the folklore use of green leaves to treat inflammation, the anti-inflammatory property of chlorophylls and their degradation products were studied. (springer.com)
  • The study shows that chlorophyll a and its degradation products are valuable and abundantly available anti-inflammatory agents and promising for the development of phytomedicine or conventional medicine to treat inflammation and related diseases. (springer.com)
  • genes
  • Chlorophyll a inhibited bacterial lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF-α (a pro-inflammatory cytokine) gene expression in HEK293 cells, but it did not influence the expression of inducible nitric acid synthase and cyclooxygenase-2 genes. (springer.com)
  • algorithm
  • The performance of the OC2 Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) algorithm based on 490- and 555-nm water-leaving radiances at low chlorophyll contents is compared with those of semianalytical models and a Monte Carlo radiative transfer model. (osapublishing.org)
