Context: Vascular dysfunction is considered a hallmark of ageing that has been associated with altered vasomotor responses, in which nitric oxide (NO) and reactive oxygen species participate. The consumption of Spirulina extracts, with antioxidant properties, increased recently. Objective: This study investigates the effect of Spirulina aqueous ex...

Thirteen fieldworks campaigns were carried out in the multistratified Palaeolithic site of Hort de Cortés-Volcán del Faro (HC-VF), the results of which were published in various papers and notes up to the definitive report of 2003. The first campaigns set its interest and parallels with the nearby sequence of Parpalló Cave (Gandia). However, the as...

Los resultados de las excavaciones realizadas entre 1968 y 1984 en la Cova de Hort de Cortés- Volcán del Faro quedaron limitados a identificar materiales solutrenses, magdalenienses y neolíticos-calcolíticos. Una lectura crítica de la Memoria de excavaciones, publicada en 2003, permitió plantear la posibilidad de la presencia de ocupaciones anterio...

The excavation of the Volcán del Faro site (Cullera, Valencia) did not live up to the expectations created after the discovery of the perforated staff. The prospect of a new Palaeolithic sequence, close to that of Parpalló (Gandia, Valencia), brought with it the possibility of obtaining new palaeoenvironmental, chronostratigraphic and archaeologica...

Hypertension is a multifactorial disorder considered one of the major causes of premature death worldwide. This pathology is associated with vascular functional/structural alterations in which nitric oxide (NO) and oxygen reactive species participate. On the other hand, the use of microalgae extracts in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases is i...

En ocasiones, los hallazgos más simples resultan sorprenden-tes, aunque sean esperables. Siempre se ha aceptado que el uso de materiales tan frági-les como la piel, la madera o las fibras vegetales debieron de ser importantes durante el Paleolítico. Elaborar prendas de protección y abrigo-desde calzado a gorros-, recipientes para el almacenamiento...

In this study we present evidence of braided plant fibres and basketry imprints on clay recovered from Coves de Santa Maira, a Palaeolithic-Mesolithic cave site located in the Mediterranean region of Spain. The anatomical features of these organic fibre remains were identified in the archaeological material and compared with modern Stipa tenacissim...

L es recerques en el jaciment de les coves de Santa Maira (Castell de Castells) han permès documentar una àmplia seqüència cronostratigràfica, arqueològica i paleoambiental, amb ocupacions humanes des de l'últim Pleniglacial fins al Neolític (aproximadament entre fa 20.000 i 5.500 anys abans del present) i materials puntuals que arriben a temps his...

Conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) has important health effects, and their phospholipids forms (PL) are advantageous vehicles of this bioactive agent. Acidolysis of soybean phosphatidylcholine (PC) with conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) catalyzed by Lecitase® Ultra immobilized on Duolite A658 was studied. This reaction is typically limited by hydrolysis...
Article
Phospholipids (PL) rich in conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) have important health effects. Yields of phosphatidylcholine (PC) acidolysis with CLA use to be limited to <30%, due to competitive side-hydrolysis. Duolite A658–Lecitase is a very suitable biocatalyst for this reaction. In this study, PC hydrolysis has been practically eliminated using ext...

Spirulina biomass has great nutritional value, but its proteins are not as well adsorbed as animal ones are. New functional food ingredients and metabolites can be obtained from spirulina, using different selective biodegradations of its biomass. Four enzyme-assisted extraction methods were independently studied, and their best operation conditions...
Article
Spirulina is an important source of metabolites and nutrients. It grows rapidly with low land requirements, and it is an ideal feedstock for implementation of a biofactory of bioactive products. A Part of intracelular biocomponents are not extracted with conventional methods, but they can be using green and selective enzyme-assisted extractions. Di...

In this paper we present evidence of anthropophagic behaviour amongst hunter-gatherer groups of the Mediterranean Mesolithic. Thirty human remains have been found in the Mesolithic levels of the Santa Maira Caves. As well as describing the anthropogenic marks identified, this paper contextualizes them within the archaeological context and subsisten...
Article
Lipases B from Candida antarctica (CALB), Rhizomucor miehei (RML) and Thermomyces lanuginosus (TLL) were immobilized on octadecyl methacylate (OM) or octadecyl methacrylate (OMC) beads. Their specific activity and regioselectivity were studied in the synthesis of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) partial glycerides, which presented nutraceutical prope...
Article
The identification of unarticulated human remains with anthropic marks in archaeological contexts normally involves solving two issues: a general one associated with the analysis and description of the anthropic manipulation marks, and another with regard to the interpretation of their purpose. In this paper we present new evidence of anthropophagi...

Alcoholysis of oils mediated by immobilized lipases are limited by mass transfer effects on substrates. In this work, Novozym® 435 lipase was subjected to seven different chemical derivatizations. The effects of changes in the enzyme surface and changes of the support particles size, on substrates mass transfer restrictions were studied on the alco...

Los trabajos de campo llevados a cabo en el yacimiento de cronología eneolítica de El Cinto Mariano, en Requena (Valencia), han permitido identificar en uno de los sectores de excavación un área de redil o espacio de reclusión de ganado ovicaprino. La corroboración de dicha funcionalidad viene dada por una tipología característica de los depósitos...

The present work provides an overall interpretation of the La Peña de Estebanvela site, on the framework of the Magdalenian in central Spain. Studies of the geoarchaeological, chronostratigraphic, taxonomic, zooarchaeological, taphonomic, anthracological and phytological records allow the chronology of the site’s occupations to be determined. Somet...

Most researchers agree about the importance of the fire during the Pleistocene. The controlled use of fire could allow advances in the ways of life, not only for its value as a constant source of light and heat, but also because it contributed to the processing of food, to warding off the carnivores, and especially, to human socialization, as fire...

Les estructures documentades al jaciment de Colata (Montaverner, València) mostren la parcialitat del registre que caracteritza aquest tipus de jaciment a l’aire lliure del IV mil·lenni aC, cosa que obliga a plantejar noves estratègies per a reinterpretar l’evolució en les conductes d’emmagatzematge, consum i producció d’aliments, i en la organitza...

Human alteration and accumulation in caves and rock-shelter deposits have changed interpretation of grain size distribution, which cannot differentiate between natural deposits and human ones. Therefore, it is necessary to undertake further complementary sedimentologic analyses, such as the description of the minerals that form the sediment, so tha...

Los depósitos de estiércol ovicaprino, formados durante el Neolítico en cuevas y abrigos, pueden haber sufrido un proceso de mineralización tanto por la actuación antrópica a partir de la combustión como por procesos naturales como puede ser la oxidación de la materia orgánica. La alternancia de los procesos de combustión y mineralización natural s...
