SJG-1 holofhuria neuritogenic activity towards the rat pheochromocytoma cell line PC12 cells in the presence of nerve growth factor Kaneko et al. The anus is terminal. Holothuria atra Common name: Similarly the inhibitory action of extracts were found against the HSV-1 and HSV-2 strains was analyzed by plaque reduction assay.

The active fractions obtained from column chromatography were analysed for Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy NMR analysis. The sea cucumber Telenata ananas derived bioactive compounds were reported to act as the chemokine receptor subtype-5 CCR5 with possible anti-HIV activity Hegde et al.

The antiviral activity was defined as the percentage of plaque inhibition as follows: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Additionally, a cerebroside isolated from the sea cucumber Stichopus japonicas showed effective antitumor activity Hayashi holothyria al.

Views Read Edit View history. Shallow-water populations are denser and composed of smaller individuals, which reproduce mostly by transversal fission, while populations in deeper waters with larger and more atea individuals reproduce sexually. The biologically active compounds were extracted as a function of their polarity using water and organic solvents. Sterilized filter paper discs Whatman no.


Inhibitory action of Holothuria atra extracts against HSV strains -? The column was packed with silica gel.

A constriction appears, becomes deeper and deeper and after some time the integument separates leaving two relatively wide but short individuals. The species is fished in some parts of its range, but the processed product is of low commercial value. A total of 59 natural compounds were identified from the extracts of sea cucumber H.

A review of the family Holothuriidae Holothurioidea Aspidochirotida. The plaques were counted by visual examination and the percentage of plaque inhibition was calculated.

Then it was centrifuged at rpm for 15 min. Received Jul 30; Accepted Oct Holothuria atra Jaeger, [2]. The online version of this article doi: Holothuria atracommonly known as the black sea cucumber or lollyfish holothuira, is a species of marine invertebrate in the family Holothuriidae.

The strong growth inhibitory activity found in the extract of Holothuria atra might be the source for the development of antiherpetic compound.

Percentage cell inhibition and characterization of cell line exposed to Holothuria atra using tryphan blue. Angiogenesis inhibitors and aromatase inhibitors present in sea cucumbers play a major role in reducing the growth of breast cancer and prostate cancers, especially the solid tumors.

Holothuria atra

Introduction The marine holothurians are spiny skinned invertebrates, which form important commercial group among the echinoderms. No Name of the compound Molecular formula M. Triterpene glycosides, namely holothurinosides A, B, C and D as well as desholothurin A from sea cucumber Holothuria forskalihave considerable antitumour activity against P cell lines.

Marine pharmacology in Being an essential dye, Tryphan blue was used in estimating the number of viable cells present in a population.
