• seaweeds
  • In the present article we will deal with naturally-occurring algae as food for man, and the macroscopic marine algae called seaweeds will be our main concern. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • Consequently, the use of seaweeds as food would usually be foreign to such societies except for those folk living on a seacoast - and these would use algae only to allay hunger in times of dire necessity such as crop-failure, to follow a fad, or to perpetuate the practice of an older indigenous population. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • Seaweeds, classified into red algae (Rhodophyta), brown algae (Ochrophyta, Phaeophyceae) and green algae (Chlorophyta) [ 1 , 2 ], are a renewable natural resource with extensive distribution along the Pacific coast [ 3 ]. (mdpi.com)
  • Eukaryotic
  • In eukaryotic algae (except dinoflagellates) and oceanic cyanobacteria the first step in sulphate assimilation, catalysed by ATP sulfurylase (ATPS) is subject to redox regulation, whereas in vascular plants APS reductase is the main control point in the pathway. (springer.com)
  • Biological
  • In the First Article of this series (Johnston 1965), we dealt with the importance of algae as producers of organic matter-the fuel of the biological world. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • Most important of all we must see how the algae fit into the scheme of things by acting as the biological protyle for aquatic animal foodchains, since these ultimately support the fishing industry - still the second largest industry in the world. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • significance
  • Algae are critical to global primary production, CO 2 sequestering and biomineralization as well as being of economic significance in the food, pharmaceutical and biofuel industries. (springer.com)
  • Important
  • Since food is the most important requirement of the human body and eating an ever enjoyable pastime, it is perhaps natural enough if we broach this huge topic by considering the algae that Man has used directly as food for himself. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • structural
  • Often, post-secretory crosslinking with cations alters the structural architecture of these polymers that, in turn, influences the strength and function of the cell wall. (springer.com)
  • Cell : Cell is the structural and functional unit of life. (scc-education.com)
  • S is present in numerous pivotal structural and functional compounds such as the amino acids cysteine and methionine, non-protein thiols (glutathione), sulpholipids, vitamins and cofactors, cell wall constituents. (springer.com)
  • mechanisms
  • Modern molecular and immunobinding studies are now probing the specific mechanisms in wall development including modulations that occur during morphogenesis and in response to environmental triggers. (springer.com)
  • food
  • It is to be expected therefore that algae will initiate all animal food-chains in the seas and freshwaters, in much the same way as land plants initiate terrestrial animal food-chains. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • So our next section will deal with algae as articles of food. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • Having seen how easily planktonic algae yield to laboratory culture, Science has tried to cultivate algae industrially for food - hoping through advanced technology to be able to improve on Nature's productivity. (victoria.ac.nz)
  • Methylation (one of the more complex topics we studied in my Kinesiology training) put very simply is the chemical process by which we turn the food we eat into us - ie, our body's cells. (janefarrellfood.com)
  • fraction
  • His-tagged recombinant AgaB-4 (rAgaB-4) was purified from the soluble fraction of E. coli cell lysate through immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography. (springer.com)
  • substances
  • During methylation, methyl groups are added or taken away from other molecules in order to produce the substances we need to function, ie, to make, maintain or detoxify our cells, produce hormones, etc. (janefarrellfood.com)
  • complex
  • These polymers are synthesized in the Golgi Apparatus, transported to cell surface sites via actin- and tubulin-based motors and deposited in the wall complex. (springer.com)
  • forms
  • Lignin is polymer of aromatic compounds produced through a biosynthetic procedure and forms a protective bed for the works walls. (signifiance.com)
  • plasma
  • A. During endocytosis of GLUT4 transporters in fat cells, there is removal of GLUT4 transporters from plasma membranes. (expertsmind.com)
