What is it about?

One type of sulphated polysaccharide (agaran) has been isolated from red seaweed Gracilaria cornea. In this present study, we investigated its neuroprotective proprieties on in vivo model of hemiparkinsionism associated to locomotion, weight loss and neurochemical changes.

Why is it important?

In this study, we show the interaction between a natural compound isolated from alga and the brain healthy, which it promotes a protective effect against a neurotoxin in different levels on in vivo model. Thus, we suggest that compounds from algae have neuroprotective potential.
