Braz J Biol 2021 4;82:e235475. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia - INPA, Laboratório de Bioprospecção e Biotecnologia - LABB, Coordenação de Tecnologia e Inovação - COTEI, Manaus, AM, Brasil.

Plants that produce secondary metabolites with allelopathic activity or phytotoxicity can be biotechnologically important, serving as sources of allelochemicals, and thus contributing to the agroindustrial sector. Vismia japurensis (Hypericaceae) is an Amazonian species that grows in clumps called vismiais, from which most other plants are absent. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to identify possible phytotoxicity effects of hexane and methanol extracts of Vismia japurensis leaves and branches in vivo and from seedlings grown in vitro on Lactuca sativa.

Survey of the allelopathic potential of Mediterranean macroalgae: production of long-chain polyunsaturated aldehydes (PUAs).

Phytochemistry 2021 Jun 5;189:112826. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Dipartimento di Scienze Biologiche, Geologiche e Ambientali - Università di Bologna, Via Sant'Alberto 163, 48123, Ravenna, Italy.

Chemical interactions between macroalgae and other organisms play an important role in determining species compositions and dominance patterns, and can explain the widespread success of some species in establishing their predominant populations in a specific coastal area. Allelopathy could act as a self-regulatory strategy of the algal community, being not only a succession regulator but also an active mechanism maintaining the species diversity especially in a delimited environment, such as the benthic ecosystem. Polyunsaturated aldehydes (PUAs) are among the most studied allelopathic compounds and are commonly released into the aquatic environment by different phytoplankton species in response to environmental stressors (e.
