Poster Information
Abstract: Significant progress has been detected in publication rates of genus Turbinaria over the past five years eight species names which represent about 24.24% from species accepted taxonomically were detected for chemically and pharmacologically activities. omega-3, Laminaran, fucoidan, alginate, phlorotannins, phloroglucinol, fucoxanthin, apo-9'-fucoxanthinone, and squalene were detected in the phytochemical profile of the genus Turbinaria. Chemical diversity confirmed that Turbinaria may be a rich supply of phytochemicals that possessed many pharmacological activities.Summary: The genus Turbinaria is still chemically and pharmacologically underexplored. These brown algae belong to the family Sargassaceae. This study focuses on the genus Turbinaria during the period 1972 to 2020References:
