A genus of toxic marine GREEN ALGAE found throughout tropical and subtropical seas. One species, Caulerpa taxifolia, is highly invasive and produces the poison caulerpenyne, deadly to marine organisms though not humans.
Multicellular marine macroalgae including some members of red (RHODOPHYTA), green (CHLOROPHYTA), and brown (PHAEOPHYTA) algae. They are widely distributed in the ocean, occurring from the tide level to considerable depths, free-floating (planktonic) or anchored to the substratum (benthic). They lack a specialized vascular system but take up fluids, nutrients, and gases directly from the water. They contain CHLOROPHYLL and are photosynthetic, but some also contain other light-absorbing pigments. Many are of economic importance as FOOD, fertilizer, AGAR, potash, or source of IODINE.
A method for the study of certain organic compounds within cells, in situ, by measuring the light intensities of the selectively stained areas of cytoplasm. The compounds studied and their locations in the cells are made to fluoresce and are observed under a microscope.
Analytical technique for studying substances present at enzyme concentrations in single cells, in situ, by measuring light absorption. Light from a tungsten strip lamp or xenon arc dispersed by a grating monochromator illuminates the optical system of a microscope.

Immunostimulatory activity of polysaccharides isolated from Caulerpa lentillifera on macrophage cells. (6/14)

Polysaccharides were extracted from Caulerpa lentillifera by treating with water and then purified by size-exclusion chromatography. The purified polysaccharides, termed SP1, were found to be sulfated xylogalactans with a molecular mass of more than 100 kDa. Adding SP1 to murine macrophage RAW 264.7 cells increased the production of nitric oxide (NO) in a dose-dependent manner. NO was found by immunoblotting and RT-PCR analyses to be synthesized by an inducible NO synthase. SP1 caused the degradation of IkappaB-alpha and the nuclear translocation of nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB subunit p65 in macrophage cells. SP1 also increased the phosphorylation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK). These results demonstrate that SP1 activated macrophage cells via both the NF-kappaB and p38 MAPK signaling pathways. Moreover, SP1 increased the expression of various genes encoding cytokines, and the phagocytic activity of macrophage cells. These combined results show that SP1 immunostimulated the activity of macrophage cells.  (+info)

Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities of a sulfated polysaccharide isolated from the green seaweed Caulerpa cupressoides. (7/14)

BACKGROUND: Red and brown algae sulfated polysaccharides (SPs) have been widely investigated as antinociceptive and/or anti-inflammatory agents; however, no description of these biological properties concerning green algae SPs have been reported. Caulerpa curpressoides (Chlorophyta) presents three SPs fractions (Cc-SP1, Cc-SP2, and Cc-SP3). Anticoagulant (in vitro) and anti- and pro-thrombotic (in vivo) effects of Cc-SP2 had been recently reported. We evaluated the effects of Cc-SP2 using models of nociception and acute inflammation in vivo. METHODS: Male Swiss mice received Cc-SP2 (iv) 30 min prior to receiving 0.6% acetic acid (10 ml/kg, ip), 1% formalin (20 mul, sc) or were subjected to thermal stimuli (51 +/- 1 degrees C). Cc-SP2 was injected sc to male Wistar rats in a peritonitis model or a paw edema model using carrageenan (ip or ipl, 500 mug). To analyze the systemic effects, Cc-SP2 (27 mg/kg, sc) was administrated to both genders mice before waiting for 14 days. RESULTS: Cc-SP2 (3, 9 or 27 mg/kg) reduced (p < 0.05) the number of writhes induced by acetic acid by 57, 89.9 and 90.6%, respectively, the licking time in the first (9 or 27 mg/kg with 42.47 and 52.1%, respectively) and the second (3, 9 or 27 mg/kg with 68.95, 82.34 and 84.61%, respectively) phases. In the hot-plate test, the antinociceptive effect of Cc-SP2 (9 mg/kg) was primarily observed at 60 min (26.7 +/- 1.2 s), with its effect reversed by naloxone (8.6 +/- 1.3 s), suggesting the involvement of the opioid system. Cc-SP2 (3, 9 or 27 mg/kg, sc, p < 0.05) showed anti-inflammatory effects by decreasing neutrophils migration by 64, 69 and 73%, respectively, and potently reduced the paw edema, especially at the second (0.16 +/- 0.02, 0.16 +/- 0.03 and 0.12 +/- 0.05 ml) and third (0.16 +/- 0.03, 0.18 +/- 0.02 and 0.14 +/- 0.04 ml) hours, respectively. Cc-SP2 did not cause hepatic or renal alterations or affect body mass or the macroscopy of the organs examined (p > 0.05). Histopathological analyses of the liver and kidney showed that both organs were affected by Cc-SP2 treatment, but these effects were considered reversible. CONCLUSION: The results indicate that the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of Cc-SP2 could be of biomedical applicability as a new, natural tool in pain and acute inflammatory conditions.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Glucose homeostasis is distorted by defects of the PI3K/AKT and AMPK pathways in insulin-sensitive tissues, allowing the accumulation of glucose in the blood. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects and mechanisms by which ethanol extract of Caulerpa lentillifera (CLE) regulates glucose metabolism in C57BL/KsJ-db/db (db/db) mice. METHODS: Mice were administered CLE (250 or 500 mg/kg BW) or rosiglitazone (RSG, 10 mg/kg BW) for 6 weeks. Then, oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and intraperitoneal insulin tolerance test (IPITT) were performed, and blood glucose was measured in db/db mice. Levels of insulin and insulin resistance factors in plasma, glycogen content in the liver, and IRS, PI3K, AKT, and GLUT4 expressions in skeletal muscles were measured in db/db mice. Glucose uptake and insulin signaling molecules were measured in L6 myocytes, using fluorometry and Western blotting. RESULTS: CLE significantly decreased fasting blood glucose, glucose level in OGTT and IPITT, ...
Caulerpa lentillifera and Eucheuma cottonii are seaweeds that have been consumed as a vegetable in Sabah local people. The 2,2-diphenyl+picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical-scavenging activity and ferric reducing antioxidant power assay (FRAP) were used to determine the antioxidant activity In green seaweed, C. lentillifera and red seaweed, E. cottonii at different temperature treatments (blanching, oven drying, sun drying, chilling and freezing). The total antioxidant activity of C. lentillifera was higher than E. cottonii. The radical scavenging activity of fresh C. lentillifera was 23.6±1.07 % and E. cottonii was 18.63±0.48 %. While, the ferric reducing power of fresh C. lentillifera was 430.33±0.98 µM TE/mg and fresh E.a cottonii was 348.34±0.40 µM TE/mg. Among all of the heat treatments (in both assays), blanching treatment has shown the highest antioxidant activity for C. lentillifera and E. cottonii. The order of antioxidant activity level in heat treatments for the tested ...

The cell is a membrane-enclosed body that is the structural and functional unit of living organisms, being the smallest unit that can carry on all life processes, including maintenance, growth, replication, and self-repair. As such, it is sometimes called the building block of life (Alberts et al. 2002). Some organisms, such as bacteria, are unicellular, consisting of a single cell. Other organisms, such as humans, are multicellular. Humans have an estimated 100 trillion or 1014 cells; a typical cell size is 10 µm, a typical cell mass 1 nanogram. However, while a general characteristics of cells is that they are microscopic in size, biological cells also include vertebrate eggs (or ovum, the female reproductive cell), which commonly are visible to the unaided human eye, as well as nerve cells that can be very long in some organisms (perhaps 12 meters or 39 feet in the giant squid); there also are single-celled algae (genus Caulerpa) up to 3 meters or 10 feet in length. All living organisms, ...
Seawater warming is impacting marine ecosystems, but proper evaluation of change requires the availability of long-term biological data series. Mesco Reef (Ligurian Sea, Italy) offers one of the longest Mediterranean data series on sessile epibenthic communities, based on underwater photographic surveys. This study aimed to: i) update the existing historical data series in Mesco Reef with new photographic surveys carried out in 2017, in order to see if the community remained stable for a further decade or returned to the previous situation; and ii) compare community trends with pre-existing sea water temperature data. Multivariate analysis evidenced an abrupt compositional change between 1990 and 1996 and a parallel change was observed in Ligurian Sea temperatures. Data series show that two invasive macroalgae (Caulerpa cylindracea and Womersleyella setacea) became dominant after 1996. The results show that community diversity was low in 1961 to 1996, rapidly increased between 1996 and 2008, and ...
green algal seaweed called Caulerpa. As its stem grows along it makes 4-5 cm tall fronds and rootlike branches grow down into the sand. They can grow to a meter or more in length. And believe it or not this organism is all ONE CELL! Now of course this violates classic cell theory, but organisms are notorious for ignoring biology. Larger size and a complex form is supposed to follow from multicellular organization. This green algae has many nuclei, lots of chloroplasts, but there are no cross walls dividing the organism into individual cells. So there you have it campers, the biggest cell is a unicellular green algal seaweed. ...

El virus de inmunodeficiencia felina, VIF o FIV (por su sigla en inglés) es un lentivirus (de la familia Retroviridae) que afecta a los gatos domésticos mundialmente, y es el agente causante del sida felino. Aproximadamente un 11 %[1]​ de los gatos del mundo están infectados con el virus. Este virus difere taxonómicamente de otros dos retrovirus felinos, el virus de leucemia felina (FeLV en inglés) y el espumavirus felino (FFV en inglés) y está más emparentado con el virus de inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH). Dentro de los VIF, se identificaron 5 subtipos basándose en las diferencias de la secuencia de codificación de la cobertura viral. El VIF es el único lentivirus no primate que causa un síndrome similar al del sida, pero no siempre la muerte del gato, pueden vivir relativamente familiares como portadores y transmisores de la enfermedad por muchos años. Hay disponible una vacuna aunque su eficacia permanece incierta, y los gatos siguen dando positivo a las pruebas de anticuerpos ...

When you have the scientific name of a plant, you should easily find information on it with internet search engines, such as google.com. Posidonia oceanica or neptunegrass is a type of seagrass. It is an important native flowering plant forming vast underwater meadows in the Mediterranean Sea. It provides habitat, oxygen, and food for many other organisms. It can grow at a water depth of up to 40 meters. It is endangered by pollution, construction, drag netting, and an introduced algae, Caulerpa taxifolia. Neptunegrass has rhizomes, roots, ribbonlike leaves up to 1.5 meters long, and ball-like fruit. Its fruit and leaves often wash up on beaches. The fruit have air spaces allowing them to float.

Invasive tropical seaweed (Caulerpa taxifolia) in the Mediterranean Sea. This seaweed is native to the Caribbean. Hybrids were developed in Europe in the 1970s for use in marine aquariums. Accidental release into the wild, by the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, introduced this species into the Mediterranean Sea. It has now colonised much of the Mediterranean as well as posing a threat to the coast of California, where it grows to a massive size in comparison to its parent plant. Apart from its rapid growth rate, its high toxicity stops its being a food source for marine wildlife. - Stock Image B312/0065
Call me a nerd, but I have to admit that I am pretty excited about metabolomic technology. Uh, what? Metabolomics is the study of the chemical fingerprints that cells leave behind. It does not look at genes, DNA, RNA or proteins, but is a peek into the products or metabolites that result from all this genetic orchestration. It is a physiological snapshot of a living cell.. This past week, we published a study that applies metabolomics to male infertility. If you have been reading this column, you are well aware of my interest in helping sterile men become fathers. Over the last decade, it has become clear that many men with azoospermia (no ejaculated sperm) may have small pockets of sperm in the testicle. The question is how to safely find that sperm without causing undo harm to the testicle. Current methods for evaluating whether sperm are present include somewhat invasive techniques such as testicular biopsy and microdissection and less invasive ones such as FNA Sperm Mapping that I invented ...

[more ▼]. From the stem bark of STRYCHNOS MALACOCLADOS, one new bisindole alkaloid, 3-hydroxylongicaudatine Y ( 1), was isolated along with the known alkaloids vomicine ( 2), bisnordihydrotoxiferine ( 3), divarine ( 4), longicaudatine ( 5), longicaudatine Y ( 6), and longicaudatine F ( 7). All the compounds were tested for their antimalarial activity against the chloroquine-sensitive 3D7 and -resistant W2 strains of PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM. Longicaudatine was the most active compound with IC (50) values of 0.682 and 0.573 microM, respectively. The activity of compounds 1, 3, 4, 6, and 7 against the two strains ranged from 1.191 to 6.220 microM and 0.573 to 21.848 microM, respectively. Vomicine ( 2), the only monomer isolated, was inactive. The alkaloids of the ...

The shelter where I got my pigs currently has 31 guinea pigs (Mspca at Nevins Farm if anyone in my area is looking for another pig). They normally only have two or three, but they all of a sudden got about 35 more, so I assume that this must have been a breeder or pet store that went out of business, or a hoarding case. I really hope that they didnt come from a terrible situation, but with that number of pigs (it was once 40, but some got adopted), they probably didnt have the best living conditions. It makes me so upset to see pigs who havent been treated well, but its good that there are shelters who are willing and able to take in pigs who need it ...

Carrageenans are water-soluble natural gums/ which occur in certain species of seaweeds. They are sulfated natural biopolymers made up of galactose units. The major varieties of seaweeds are available from South China Sea at Sabah are Caulerpa, Ulva, Sargassum, Eucheuma, Gracilaria, Gelidiella and Kappaphycus. The thermal extraction of i-carrageenan from seaweed does not give high yield and time consuming. Ultrasonic assisted extraction was proposed as an alternative method. The 20 kHz high intensity ultrasound was used in the extraction of i-Carrageenan from Eucheum denticulatum by using water as solvent. i-carrageenan yield increased from 50 to 57.2%. A simple mathematical correlation for the estimation of the solid-liquid mass transfer coefficient was derived in terms of operating conditions VIZ, amplitude, particle size and temperature for ultrasonic extraction of i-Carrageenan. The diffusion coefficient of i-Carrageenan in water was estimated from the mass transfer coefficient. Further more ...
With this aim, the density of Paracentrotus lividus was estimated at six different locations around the Gulf of Alghero (Northwestern Sardinia, Italy). At each location, two areas were considered and within each area the number of P. lividus individuals was counted in 10 plots of dimensions 1 × 1 m each. The abundance of P. lividus and Sarpa salpa grazing marks was estimated on two shoots harvested at random in each plot. The number of P. lividus individuals varied greatly among the locations and between areas within each location. A sigmoid function was found to better describe the relation between P. lividus density and the number of its grazing marks. The distance class-frequency distribution of P. lividus grazing marks from the leaf base showed that this herbivore affected the length of the Posidonia oceanica leaf for about 700 mm, and that the attacks were concentrated at the lower portion of the leaf near the base. Conversely, a larger number of the S. salpa grazing bites were more ...
A família Trypanosomatidae inclui protozoários flagelados com dois gêneros de importância médica e veterinária: Leishmania, causador das leishmanioses e Trypanosoma, responsáveis pelas tripanossomíases de relevância epidemiológica, ambos com o envolvimento de hospedeiros mamíferos e vetores em seu ciclo de vida. O gato doméstico passou a ser considerado um hospedeiro reservatório de Leishmanias, após comprovação por xenodiagnóstico, da transmissibilidade de formas promastigotas de Leishmania infantum para o vetor flebotomíneo. Devido a inespecificidade dos achados clínicos na Leishmaniose Felina (LF), à semelhança dos aspectos clínicos dessa enfermidade com outras comuns em gatos, e à provável resistência felina a infecção, é possível que, dentro de uma área endêmica para leishmaniose ocorra um percentual elevado de indivíduos infectados, mas sem apresentarem sinais clínicos, e a falta de diagnóstico precoce da LF nessas áreas pode implicar com que o animal ...

Purpose: Mild induced hypothermia (MIH) has been shown to improve both survival and neurological outcome in comatose sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)-survivors. MIH has to be applied very early to be effective. Surface cooling methods seem to be inferior to invasive ones regarding cooling efficacy. In this study we compared both cooling methods for temperature management, hypothermia-associated complications and outcome in SCA-survivors.. Methods: In total, 179 adult ICU patients with an indication for MIH were prospectively enrolled between May 2006 and August 2009. Hypothermia was induced with either invasive or non-invasive cooling. Core body temperature was operated at 33.0°C over a period of 24 hours. Temperature decline and maintenance as well as cooling-associated complications were measured. Neurological status was evaluated at hospital discharge using the Pittsburgh Cerebral Performance Category (CPC).. Results: One hundred twenty-one patients were cooled with invasive (119 Coolgard, 2 ...
Temperature is one of the vital signs usually monitored in patients of ICUs. Indeed, fever occurs frequently in ICU especially in brain injured patients and may require targeted temperature management (TTM) in special case as intracranial hypertension or post cardiac arrest. In ICU, non invasive device to monitor temperature are not recommended and only invasive ones are accurate enough for TTM. Arterial pulmonary temperature is still the gold standard, but esophageal device is currently used in ICU patients.. The goal of this study is to compare accuracy of a continuous noninvasive cutaneous temperature using zero-heat-flux (ZHF) method to esophageal temperature, arterial temperature and intracerebral temperature if present for clinical monitoring.. All adults patients admitted in the neurosurgical or surgical ICU are eligible for inclusion into this study.. Assessment of temperature will be continuously monitored by esophageal probe (MON-A-THERM, 12Fr, COVIDIEN, Dublin, Ireland) (Teso), ZHF ...
This book deals with the ecological effect a species can have when it moves into an environment that it has not previously occupied (commonly referred to as an `Invasion). It is unique in presenting a clear and accessible introduction to a highly complex area - the modelling of biological invasions. The book presents the latest theories and models developed from studies into this crucial area.
We review the cytological mechanisms underlying asexual reproduction, i.e. reproduction without fertilization, in animals. Asexuality or parthenogenesis has evolved many times and the cytological mechanisms to restore the parental chromosome number can vary between and even within species. In automictic or meiotic parthenogenesis, meiosis takes place but the chromosomal constitution of the mother is restored through one or several different mechanisms. Some of these mechanisms enforce homozygosity at all loci while some other mechanisms pass the genome of the mother intact to the offspring. In apomictic or mitotic parthenogenesis the eggs are formed through what is essentially a set of mitoses. Polyploidy, is in general incompatible with chromosomal sex determination and is a rare condition in animals. However, many asexual and hermaphroditic forms are polyploid to various degrees. Polyploidy is divided into allo- and autopolyploidy. In the former mode the chromosome sets are derived from two or ...
