Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of C-phycocyanin

afa-klamath-kaps

Objective: Phycocyanin is a pigment found in blue-green algae which contains open chain tetrapyrroles with possible scavenging properties. We have studied its antioxidant properties. Materials and Methods: Phycocyanin was evaluated as a putative antioxidant in vitro by using: a) luminol-enhanced chemiluminescence (LCL) generated by three different radical species (02-, OH., RO.) and by zymosan activated human  polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs), b) ...

Inhibition of reverse transcriptase activity by extracts of cultured blue- green algae

afa-klamath-kaps

Lipophilic and hydrophilic extracts of over 900 strains of cultured blue- green algae (cyanophyta) were examined in vitro for their ability to inhibit the reverse transcriptases (RT) of avian myeloblastosis virus (AMV) and human immunodeficiency virus, type 1 (HIV-1). Eighteen (2.0%) aqueous extracts showed activity against AMV and HIV RTs. The maximal level of RT inhibition achieved by some of ... Read More »

Effect of dietary chlorophyll derivatives on mutagenesis and tumor cell

afa-klamath-kaps

Much attention in recent years has been given to the antigenotoxicity of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll, however, is known to be converted into pheophytin, pyropheophytin, and pheophorbide in processed vegetable food and following ingestion by humans. Studies were conducted on the antimutagenic and tumoricidal potencies of these compounds. All the chlorophyll derivatives tested exhibit identical antimutagenic effect towards 3-methylcholanthrene (3-MC), suggesting that ... Read More »
