Special Issue in Marine Drugs: Marine Natural Products That Target Metabolic Diseases
Interests: marine natural products; marine algae; marine resource; marine biotechnology; biological activities; antioxidants; medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry; chemical biology
Marine algae contain polyphenols, terpenoids, polyketides, alkaloids, sterols, and pigments, as well as carbohydrates, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and peptides. Additionally, they serve as valuable raw materials for discovering new agents that can act as antioxidants, which have an established therapeutic use. The potential of algae as an antioxidant is therefore gaining interest for treating or preventing the increasing global prevalence of health issues.
This Special Issue will cover recent advances and future perspectives that elucidate the potential of marine algae as an antioxidant. This will include the screening of marine biota, the isolation of high-value molecules with pharmacological effects and as possible food sources, and the discovery of new compounds and their applications. As the Guest Editor, I would like to invite authors to share their recent advances on the antioxidant properties of marine algae.
