      Carotenoid composition and antioxidant potential of Eucheuma denticulatum, Sargassum polycystum and Caulerpa lentillifera.
      V. BALASUBRAMANIAM*, L. JUNE CHELYN, S. VIMALA, M.N. MOHD FAIRULNIZAL, I.A. BROWNLEE, I. AMINE (*Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Research Centre, Institute for Medical Research, Ministry of Health Malaysia, Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia;

      Heliyon 6(8), e04654 (2020). HPTLC of ethanolic extracts of three algae (100µg/band) on silica gel, along with carotenoid standards (10µg/band), developed with toluene – acetone 7:3. Detection under white light. Carotenoids appeared orange or yellow, chlorophylls green, pheophytins dark khaki. Carotenoid patterns of the algae were very different depending on the family: red alga Eucheuma denticulatum (Solieriaceae) contained mainly zeaxanthin and lutein (hRF 44) and β-carotene (hRF 88), but also β-cryptoxanthin (hRF 69-71) and fucoxanthin (hRF 39); brown alga Sargassum polycystum (Sargassaceae) contained mainly fucoxanthin, and also cryptoxanthin; green alga Caulerpa lentillifera (Caulerpaceae) contained mainly zeaxanthin, but also astaxanthin (hRF 61) and canthaxanthin (hRF 77) in smaller amounts. Separately, HPLC-MS was used to confirm and quantify these compounds, which was necessary for carotenoids with similar hRF values: zeaxanthin and lutein (hRF 44), and β-carotene and lycopene (hRF 88).
