White spot syndrome virus infection decreases the activity of antioxidant enzymes in Fenneropenaeus indicus.
Increased lipid peroxidation in WSSV-infected shrimp may be due to increased oxidative stress in the cells as a result of depletion of antioxidant scavenger systems, and significant reductions in the activities of superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione-S-transferase, reduced glutATHione, glutthione peroxidase and glutathion reductase were observed in W SSV- Infected animals.

Antioxidant and membrane bound enzymes activity in WSSV-infected Penaeus monodon Fabricius
In WSSV-infected P. monodon, the activity of lipid peroxidation increased significantly (P), and total reduced glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase and membrane bound ATPases were analyzed. Expand
Antiviral activity of bis(2-methylheptyl)phthalate isolated from Pongamia pinnata leaves against White Spot Syndrome Virus of Penaeus monodon Fabricius.
Oral administration of the crude and purified compound from the leaves of P. pinnata effectively inhibited WSSV pathogenesis and reduced the mortality of infected shrimp. Expand
Heavy metal accumulation in seaweeds and sea grasses along southeast coast of India
Generally, heavy metals enter into the aquatic environment through atmospheric deposition, erosion of geological matrix or due to anthropogenic activities caused by industrial effluents, domesticExpand
Activities of membrane bound phosphatases, transaminases and mitochondrial enzymes in white spot syndrome virus infected tissues of Fenneropenaeus indicus.
It is concluded that membrane dynamics play a major role in the pathogenesis of WSSV infection, with significantly reduced activity of membrane bound phosphatases compared with the uninfected animals. Expand
Preparation of phosphorylated chitosan from gladius of the squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana (Lesson, 1830) and its in vitro antioxidant activity
Abstract To evaluate the antioxidant potential of phosphorylated chitosan from the Sepioteuthis lessoniana gladius that is thrown as waste in seafood processing industries. Chitin was extracted fromExpand
Isolation and partial characterization of collagen from outer skin of Sepia pharaonis (Ehrenberg, 1831) from Puducherry coast
Higher denaturation temperature with high molecular weight well support the property of type I collagen from skin of S. pharaonis and it could be used as another potent source for the extraction of collagen. Expand
Protein expression in white spot syndrome virus infected Penaeus monodon fabricius.
The current study has shown that the protein expression patterns of the infected tissues of P. monodon have been drastically altered by WSSV infection. Expand
Screening of antimicrobial potential of polysaccharide from cuttlebone and methanolic extract from body tissue of Sepia prashadi Winkworth, 1936
Polysaccharide from cuttlebone and methanolic extract was active against gram positive than that of gram negative pathogenic bacteria but inactive against fungi, suggesting that cephalopod polysaccharides possess relatively good antibacterial activity. Expand
Nutritional evaluation of the different body parts of cuttlefish Sepia kobiensis Hoyle, 1885
The present study explains that the cephalopods are highly delicious seafood because of their nutritive value next to fin fishes. Expand
