Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and their receptor (RAGE) system evoke inflammatory reactions and insulin resistance in adipocytes. Spa-derived green alga Mucidosphaerium sp. (MS) had anti-inflammatory properties in vitro. We examined here whether and how MS could ameliorate insulin resistance...

The mono- and the digalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG and DGDG) galactolipids with a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, mainly omega-3, have been purified from the thermophilic blue-green alga ETS-05 that colonises the therapeutic thermal mud of Abano and Montegrotto, Italy. The...

Apicomplexa are protist parasites that include Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria, and Toxoplasma gondii, responsible for toxoplasmosis. Most Apicomplexa possess a relict plastid, the apicoplast, which was acquired by secondary endosymbiosis of a red alga. Despite being nonphotosynthetic...

Galactolipids are the main structural component of plant chloroplastic (thylakoid) membranes and of blue-green algae cell membranes. The predominant lipids in this class are monogalactosyl-diacylglycerol (MGDG) and digalactosyl-diacylglycerol (DGDG). We here present a method for the preparation of bicelles that...
