Many of these compounds are used to treat diseases like cancer, acquired immune-deficiency syndrome (AIDS), inflammation, pain, arthritis, as well as viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. Codominant inheritance of polymorphic color variants of Gracilaria domingensis (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta). 2.1 Influence of environmental factors on spore release Red algae are primitive photosynthetic eukaryotes, whose spores are ideal subjects for studies of photosynthesis and development. Although, Gracilaria spp. DISCUSSION . In this study, we evaluated the effects of SP from the red seaweed Gracilaria cornea (Gc‐TSP) in nociceptive and inflammatory models. Both terrestrial plants and marine macroalgae produce a rich variety of secondary metabolites that can function as defences against herbivores , .These defence metabolites can be constitutively expressed or induced, whereby the production is increased in response to the attack. The cortex was found 1-2 layered in G. edulis and G. eucheumatoides whereas 5-6 layered in G. foliifera and G. crassa.

In these conditions, fish may be exposed to suboptimal dissolved O2 levels with an increased formation of reactive O2 species (ROS) in tissues. The red seaweed Gracilaria chilensis (Rhodophyta) occurs in estuarine habitats, where salinity is highly variable. The Ogo Plant, Gracilaria sp. This is a modular and branched seaweed (Figure 1 ) that can grow attached to rocks, buried in the sand or free living, either in the intertidal or subtidal zone (Bird, McLachlan, & Oliveira, 1986 ). 3. Following is a discussion on the influence of the various environmental factors on the release and germination of spores and growth of thallus of the spores. Introduction. Many studies classifying Gracilaria species for the exploitation of agarophytes and the development of the agar industry were conducted before the prevalence of molecular tools, resulting in the description of many species based solely on their morphology. The genus Gracilaria is currently the major source of SPs worldwide, and various studies have been done on their biology, ecology and phycocolloid characterization (Pomin and Mourão 2008). Estela M. Plastino, Melina Guimarães, Sergio R. Matioli and Eurico C. Oliveira Instituto de Biociências, Universidade de São Paulo, Caixa Postal 11461, 05422-970 São Paulo, SP, Brasil. Gracilaria vermiculophylla is a widespread macroalgal invader in the temperate estuaries of the Northern Hemisphere, and, here, we expand its documented range within northeastern Ireland and England. The Gracilaria species are distributed throughout the tropical regions of the world. The anti-inflammatory mechanisms of the sulfated polysaccharidic fraction obtained from red marine alga Gracilaria cornea (Gc-FI) were investigated using a paw edema model induced in rats by different inflammatory agents (carrageenan, dextran, serotonin, bradykinin, compound 48/80 or L-arginine).
