Bioactive Lipids of Marine Microalga Chlorococcum sp. SABC 012504 with Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-thrombotic Activities

/ Blog

The in vitro assays of the present study showed that the glycolipid and phospholipid fractions of marine microalga Chlorococcum sp. SABC 012504 possess strong anti-PAF and antithrombin activities in human platelets. These bioactivities are likely due to the presence of specific novel Chlorococcum sp. SABC 012504 SQDG molecules, HexCer-t36:2 (t18:1/18:1 and 18:2/18:0) cerebrosides with a phytosphingosine base, phosphatidylcholine (PC), and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) molecules in their lipid fractions.
