The elasmobranchs (sharks, rays and skates) being the extant survivors of one of the earliest offshoots of the vertebrate evolutionary tree are good model organisms to study the primitive vertebrate conditions. They play a significant role in maintaining the ecological balance and have high economic value. Due to over-exploitation and illegal fishing(More)
Identification of elasmobranchs by conventional taxonomy is difficult due to similarities in morphological characters. Species-specific molecular markers are good choice for identifying species irrespective of it's life stage. Recently, mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene got global recognition as a barcode gene to discriminate all(More)
BACKGROUND The analgesic activity of petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol extracts of Semecarpus anacardium was investigated by tail flicking and writhing method using acetyl salicylic acid as the standard reference. MATERIALS AND METHODS The staircase method was adopted for the determination of the acute toxicity. LD(50) of the petroleum ether(More)
BACKGROUND D. cinerea are the chief source of drug compounds that are active against various ailments such as jaundice, inflammations rheumatism, fever, asthma, body ache, chest problems, toothache, ulcers, wounds, eye diseases and have an aphrodisiac property. In present study, It was aimed to test the hepatoprotective activity of the plant. MATERIAL AND(More)
Immune response in rohu treated with an immunomodulator is usually evaluated employing either non-specific immune parameters or traditional antibody-based tools. In the present study, a monoclonal antibody-based immunodot has been developed for evaluating antibody titre in rohu as a preliminary tool to ensure antibody response due to the effect of an(More)
Immunological responses of Litopenaeus vannamei fed with two probiotic bacteria, Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus megaterium were evaluated at a post probiotic treatment scenario. This shrimp fed with the probiotics individually and in combination for 60 days was fed with normal feed and the immune response was evaluated at the 10th day post probiotic(More)
In India, many of the fish farmers stock 1-year-old stunted fishes (stunted yearlings) of Indian major carps (IMC) for enhancing fish production through compensatory growth, but many of them observed problems of early maturation in these fishes. Application of aromatase inhibitors for deceleration of ovarian maturation is one of the probable solutions to(More)
Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR), used to determine the gene expression profile, is an important tool in functional genomic research, including fishes. To obtain more robust and meaningful result, the best possible normalization of the data is of utmost significance. In the present study, we have evaluated the potential of five commonly used(More)
