Summary of "Characterization of exopolysaccharides produced by microalgae with antitumor activity on human colon cancer cells."

The physicochemical characteristics, antioxidant and antitumor activities of partial purified exopolysaccharides from microalgae Chlorella pyrenoidosa FACHB-9, Scenedesmus sp. and Chlorococcum sp. were investigated. The molecular weights were 1.94 × 10, 7.39 × 10 and 3.24 × 10 g/mol, respectively. Monosaccharide analysis indicating that these exopolysaccharides consisted of ten different kinds of sugars and derivatives, respectively. Furthermore, they exhibited obvious free radicals scavenging abilities, which reached to 55.2-71.4% and 63.1-77.5% on DPPH and hydroxyl radicals, respectively. Moreover, the antitumor effects were investigated using human colon cancer cell lines HCT116 and HCT8. The results showed that they had significant antitumor effects considering the inhibitory effects on cell viabilities (17.2-19.2% on HCT116, and 22.9-38.6 on HCT8, respectively), and could decrease the colony amounts (21-42.8% on HCT116, and 11.5-35.2% on HCT8, respectively) at the tested dosage. Thus, these exopolysaccharides may be worth further investigating as effective potential antitumor agents.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A non-taxonomic term for unicellular microscopic algae which are found in both freshwater and marine environments. Some authors consider DIATOMS; CYANOBACTERIA; HAPTOPHYTA; and DINOFLAGELLATES as part of microalgae, even though they are not algae.

In vivo methods of screening investigative anticancer drugs, biologic response modifiers or radiotherapies. Human tumor tissue or cells are transplanted into mice or rats followed by tumor treatment regimens. A variety of outcomes are monitored to assess antitumor effectiveness.

An isoflavonoid derived from soy products. It inhibits PROTEIN-TYROSINE KINASE and topoisomerase-II (DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE II); activity and is used as an antineoplastic and antitumor agent. Experimentally, it has been shown to induce G2 PHASE arrest in human and murine cell lines and inhibits PROTEIN-TYROSINE KINASE.

An antitumor antibiotic produced by Streptomyces sparsogenes. It inhibits protein synthesis in 70S and 80S ribosomal systems.

A ribonuclease activity that is a component of the HIV REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE. It removes the RNA strand of the RNA-DNA heteroduplex produced by reverse transcription. Once the RNA moiety is removed a double stranded DNA copy of the HIV RNA can be synthesized.
