Effect Of Spirulina On Fatty Liver

Fatty liver is a common cause of chronic liver disease and refers to accumulation of excess fat in the liver. It is diagnosed that if fat exceeds 5 of the total weight of normal liver or when more than 30 of the hepatocytes in a liver lobule have lipid deposits, most of the fat that accumulates in the liver is triacylglycerols and fatty acids other forms of fat, such as cholesterol, cholesterol ester, and phospholipids, are also present.

Life Cycle Of Spirulina

Spirulina Life Cycle

The life cycle of Spirulina (Figure 5.2) in laboratory culture is rather simple. A mature trichome is broken into several pieces through the formation of specialized cells, necridia, that undergo lysis, giving rise to biconcave separation disks. The fragmentation of the trichome at the necridia produces gliding, short (two to four cells) chains of cells, and the hormogonia, which move away from the parental filament to give rise to a new trichome. The cells in the hormogonium lose the attached...
