Abstract

“PHARMACOLOGICAL POTENTIAL OF THE BROMOPHENOLS OF A RED MARINE ALGA SYMPHYOCLADIA LATIUSCULA” – A REVIEW

Zionmit Lepcha* and Deepak Kumar Jha

ABSTRACT

Symphyocladia latiuscula (Yamada), a marine red alga belonging to the family Rhodomelaceae, from order ceramiales is found in the coasts of Japan, Korea and Northern China. Historically, it has been used quite a few times in the medicinal approaches of the Asian community. The main bioactive constituent of the alga is bromophenol. Numerous bromophenols and its many derivatives isolated from the alga have exhibited diverse potential in its pharmacological activity against various diseases. Current paper reviews the pharmacological action and therapeutic indication of the bromophenols of S. latiuscula. The alga has been reported to possess anti viral, anti fungal, anti diabetic, anti Alzheimer’s, peroxynitrite scavenging, diabetic peripheral neuropathy amelioration, aldose reductase inhibition, and etc activities. A further study to explore the therapeutic efficacy of Symphyocladia latiuscula is recommended.

Keywords: Red alga, Symphyocladia latiuscula, Pharmacological action, Bromophenols.
