Many marine-derived polysaccharides and their analogues have been reported as showing anticancer and cancer preventive properties. These compounds demonstrate interesting activities and special modes of action, differing from each other in both structure and toxicity profile. Herein, literature data concerning anticancer and cancer preventive marine polysaccharides are reviewed. The structural diversity, the biological activities, and the molecular mechanisms of their action are discussed.
A newly designed sunscreen has harnessed the biological strategies that aquatic organisms evolved to prevent the negative effect of UV radiations. Despite being made from fish mucus, crustacean shells and fungi, the sunscreen is more effective than current products and can be applied to skin as well as your backyard furniture. There is an urgent need to create new sunscreens that are an improvement on the currently used UV-protective products. Existing options are made from a combination of synthetic and natural compounds that can be unstable and do not provide full protection against both UV-A and UV-B. They also pose a threat to the environment and human health with long-term use. Professor Vincent Bulone and colleagues exploited the UV-absorbing properties of small compounds - molecular sunscreens isolated from algae, microorganisms and the mucus and lenses of reef fish. These compounds, called mycosporines are synthesised to naturally protect organisms from UV radiations. Mycosporines have

The geological, biological and geochemical features of a particular field of hydrothermal vents, discovered in the Panarea Volcanic Complex during a research survey carried out in 2015, are described for the first time. The site, located at 70-80 m depth off the South-western coast of the islet of Basiluzzo, was named Smoking Land for the presence of a large number of wide and high active chimneys and was characterized in terms of dissolved benthic fluxes, associated macrofauna and megafauna communities and preliminary mineralogy and geochemistry of chimney structures. On the whole field, a total of 39 chimneys, different in size and shape, were closely observed and described; 14 of them showed emission of low temperature hydrothermal fluids of marine origin characterized by acidified chemical conditions. The CTD and benthic chamber measurements highlighted that the Smoking Land is able to form a sea water bottom layer characterized by variable acidity and high DIC and trace elements ...

Marine biology- Marine biology is the scientific study of living organisms in the ocean or other marine or brackish bodies of water. World Marine Environment.Given that in biology many phyla, families and genera have some species that live in the sea and others that live on land, marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology differs from marine ecology as marine ecology is focused on how organisms interact with each other and environment and biology is the study of the animal itself.

The physical signs and symptoms of diabetes do not always accompany hyperglycemia that is identified by blood tests (Fraser, 2007). It is recommended that both fasting blood glucose and Hemoglobin A1C be screened in all individuals with pressure ulcers, as an individual may present with normal fasting levels but have impaired glucose tolerance. Screening an individual who has no known history of diabetes mellitus may uncover previously unidentified hyperglycemia that is negatively impacting his or her wound management. Preventing and treating ulcers are more effective when screening and management measures are implemented to address underlying factors such as hyperglycemia that impede successful outcomes. Hemoglobin A1C levels greater than 7.0 per cent (0.070) are associated with significantly increased risk for both microvascular and macrovascular complications (Canadian Diabetes Association Expert Committee, 2003). Individuals with diabetes exhibit significantly impaired wound healing and ...

Natural products have been a rich source of compounds with structural and chemical diversity for drug discovery. However, antibiotic resistance in bacteria has been reported for nearly every antibiotic once it is used in clinical practice. In the past decade, pharmaceutical companies have reduced their natural product discovery projects because of challenges, such as high costs, low return rates, and high rediscovery rates. The largely unexplored marine environment harbours substantial diversity and is a large resource to discover novel compounds with novel modes of action, which is essential for the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections. In this Review, we report compounds derived from marine sources that have shown in-vivo and in-vitro efficacy against drug-resistant bacteria. Analysis of the physicochemical properties of these marine natural products with activity against drug-resistant bacteria showed that 60% of the compounds have oral bioavailability potential. Their overall ...
In this study, polysaccharides of marine origin (agar, alginate and κ-carrageenan) were used to embed nutrients to fabricate biocomposites to be employed in animal feeding. The consistency of biocomposites in water has been evaluated up to 14 days, by several methods: swelling, nutrient release and granulometric analysis. Biocomposites were produced with varying percentages of nutrients (5%-25%) and polysaccharides (1%-2%-3%). All possible biopolymer combinations were tested in order to select those with the best network strength. The best performing biocomposites were those manufactured with agar 2% and nutrients 10%, showing the lowest percentage of water absorption and nutrient release. Biocomposites made of agar 2% and nutrients 10% were the most stable in water and were therefore used to analyze their behavior in water with respect to the release of quercetin, a phenolic compound with demonstrated high antibacterial and antioxidant activities. The leaching of such molecules in water was therefore

The aquatic block of lectures starts with an examination of the physiological adaptations for invertebrate marine life living within sea water, arguably the most trouble-free stable environment for animals on the planet. The lectures progress onto marine vertebrates (Myxiniformes, Chondrichthyes and teleosts), then moves to deal with brackish water, and on into the freshwater environment from both an invertebrate and vertebrate perspective. After which, the thermal adaptation of aquatic organisms within a variety of habitats is discussed, covering the open ocean, polar regions, intertidal etc. Specialised topics, such as regional endothermy are also discussed. Locomotion within the aquatic environment is governed by organism size and Reynolds forces; the lectures will discuss swimming in relation to viscosity and inertia, across a range of aquatic organisms both invertebrate and vertebrate. The cheap alternative to swimming employed by many aquatic invertebrates, employing buoyancy and increased ...

The environmental presence of chemosensitizers or inhibitors of the multixenobiotic resistance (MXR) defense system in aquatic organisms could cause increase in intracellular accumulation and toxic effects of other xenobiotics normally effluxed by MXR transport proteins (P-glycoprotein (P-gps), MRPs). MXR inhibition with concomitant detrimental effects has been shown in several studies with aquatic organisms exposed to both model MXR inhibitors and environmental pollutants. The presence of MXR inhibitors has been demonstrated in environmental samples from polluted locations at concentrations that could abolish P-gp transport activity. However, it is not clear whether the inhibition observed after exposure to environmental samples is a result of saturation of MXR transport proteins by numerous substrates present in polluted waters or results from the presence of powerful MXR inhibitors. And are potent environmental MXR inhibitors natural or man-made chemicals? As a consequence of these ...

The marine habitat represents an untapped source of bioactive compounds with promising therapeutic potential and clinical applications. As a result of intensive bioprospecting efforts in the search of bioactive secondary metabolites from the marine environment, during the last decade there has been a considerable increase in the number of marine natural products that have been successfully launched into the drug market (i.e., Yondelis®, Adcertis®, Halaven®). In addition, numerous potential marine-derived drug candidates are currently in advanced stages of clinical development. This has partly been driven by advances in sampling and analytical techniques as well as by novel high-throughput screening platform technologies. Nevertheless, the limited supply of promising bioactive metabolites from their natural sources remains one of the major bottlenecks in marine natural products drug discovery and development.As an alternative to the environmentally unsustainable wild harvesting, marine invertebrate
The factors controlling the relative abundances of Archaea and Bacteria in marine sediments are poorly understood. We determined depth distributions of archaeal and bacterial 16S rRNA genes by quantitative PCR at eight stations in Aarhus Bay, Denmark. Bacterial outnumber archaeal genes 10-60-fold in uppermost sediments that are irrigated and mixed by macrofauna. This bioturbation is indicated by visual observations of sediment color and faunal tracks, by porewater profiles of dissolved inorganic carbon and sulfate, and by distributions of unsupported 210Pb and 137Cs. Below the depth of bioturbation, the relative abundances of archaeal genes increase, accounting for one third of 16S rRNA genes in the sulfate zone, and half of 16S rRNA genes in the sulfate-methane transition zone and methane zone. Phylogenetic analyses reveal a strong shift in bacterial and archaeal community structure from bioturbated sediments to underlying layers. Stable isotopic analyses on organic matter and porewater ...
Definition (http://www.fao.org/fishery/cwp/handbook/j/en). Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms: fish, molluscs, crustaceans, aquatic plants, crocodiles, alligators, turtles, and amphibians. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated. For statistical purposes, aquatic organisms which are harvested by an individual or corporate body which has owned them throughout their rearing period contribute to aquaculture, while aquatic organisms which are exploitable by the public as a common property resource, with or without appropriate licences, are the harvest of capture fisheries. (FAO). Preferred Units: N/A. Scope Note: ...
In this review paper, the latest literature on the functional properties of phospholipids in relation to inflammation and inflammation-related disorders has been critically appraised and evaluated. The paper is divided into three sections: Section 1 presents an overview of the relationship between structures and biological activities (pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory) of several phospholipids with respect to inflammation. Sections 2 and 3 are dedicated to the structures, functions, compositions and anti-inflammatory properties of dietary phospholipids from animal and marine sources. Most of the dietary phospholipids of animal origin come from meat, egg and dairy products. To date, there is very limited work published on meat phospholipids, undoubtedly due to the negative perception that meat consumption is an unhealthy option because of its putative associations with several chronic diseases. These assumptions are addressed with respect to the phospholipid composition of meat products. ...
PART I. A deuterium exchange analysis of 2,5-dihydroxyacetanilide (5) in the absence and presence of DHAE II was performed to test the nucleophilicity of the substrate in the absence and presence of catalyst. In addition, inhibition studies using 1,4-dihydroxybenzene were performed to determine the role that the N-acetyl side chain group plays in the formation of a stable substrate-enzyme complex. 1,4-Dihydroxybenzene was found to be a weak inhibitor, indicating that the N-acetyl functionality may play a crucial role in forming stable enzyme-substrate interactions. The synthesis of dihydroquinoline 7 was pursued to investigate the enzyme substrate interactions between DHAE and a substrate where the N-acetyl side chain has been fixed to a particular orientation. Efforts towards formation of the C6-C7 bond as a key step in the synthesis of dihydroquinoline 7 using palladium couplings, organocuprates, Lewis acid catalysts, and aza-Claisen reactions were pursued. To complement the results obtained, ...

The marine environment may contain over 80% of the worlds plant and animal species, and during the past decade over 5000 novel compounds have been isolated from marine organisms. The diversity of chemical compounds in the marine environment may be due in part to the extreme competition among organisms for space and resources … It is hypothesized that sessile marine organisms (for example, sponges, octocorals, tunicates and algae), have developed a diverse array of chemical compounds known as "secondary metabolites" or natural products for defense and competition. It is worth noting that this research group alone has discovered 235 bioactive compounds and has had over 117 patents issued over the last 10 years. Researchers in synthetic biology may be in a position to increase the payoff from this research. Once pharmaceuticals (or possibly specialty chemicals) have been derived from marine natural products, "synthetic biology" approaches developed at Berkeley could lower the cost of producing ...

Industrial biotechnology. Also known as white biotechnology, this field is based on the use of living cells and/or their enzymes for the sustainable production of chemicals, materials and fuels from renewable sources (79). This fast emerging area focuses on the development of clean bioprocesses with a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as well as energy and water usage (24). In the production of chemicals, biocatalytic reactions can replace a multistep synthesis with a single step involving low energy and less material input, producing higher quality products at a lower cost (93). More importantly, they sometimes enable the synthesis of products that may not be possible to synthesize otherwise (26). Current challenges are the development of novel and improved biocatalysts for the production of chemicals, as well as a cost-effective production of these enzymes (26). It is expected that 20% of the global chemicals (fine chemicals, specialties, polymers, etc.) and 60 % of fine chemicals will be ...
Marine diatoms. Light micrograph of an array of marine diatoms, part of the algae family. Diatoms are microscopic unicellular organisms that occur abundantly in marine and freshwater plankton. They form the basis of the food chain. The body is composed of two halves, which fit together like a tiny pill box. The cell walls contain silica, which is preserved in deposits known as siliceous or diatomaceous earths (ooze). Once hardened into rock it is called diatomite. The high porosity of this rock enables it to be used for filters, fillers and as a mild abrasive. (Magnification x25 at 35mm size). - Stock Image B946/0025

The invention relates to Algologie and Microbiology, and in particular to methods of allocation bacteriologically pure cultures of marine blue-green microalgae.. Currently, much attention is paid to the development of test systems for the evaluation of toxicity of the components of the marine ecosystems of water bodies, which requires the isolation of pure cultures of aquatic organisms, in particular microalgae. The standard procedure consists of isolating and growing algological pure cultures of algae, which then selects the most promising for biological testing. However, cultures of microalgae always be contaminated by bacterial microflora, spores and mycelium of fungi, which prevents further research, distorts the results. Purification from bacteria is a very time consuming process, because between algae and bacteria are dense biocenotic relationships. The mucous membranes of the algae serve as food source and shelter for microorganisms. Such a close relationship determines the difficulty of ...

Flourish Advance™ is an all-natural, biologic growth enhancer for aquatic plants. Its advanced formula contains phytohormones, minerals, and nutrients that dramatically stimulate the growth of both roots and shoots in aquatic plants. Phytohormones are a group of naturally occurring compounds that play crucial roles in regulating plant growth in a wide range of developmental processes, including cell division, formation and activity of shoot meristems, induction of photosynthesis gene expression, leaf senescence, nutrient mobilization, seed germination, root growth and stress response. Used regularly, it also enhances mineral absorption and improves disease resistance. It is non-toxic and completely safe for all plant varieties as well as for fish and aquatic organisms.. During the first ten to fourteen days after application, Flourish Advance™ works to stimulate root growth beneath the surface. After this initial induction period, significantly enhanced growth in the leaves and stems of the ...
