Biochemical properties of polyphenoloxidase from the cephalothorax of Pacific white shrimp ( Litopenaeus vannamei ) Nilesh Prakash Nirmal and


Melanosis is a major problem associated with the quality loss of Pacific white shrimp. This is mediated by polyphenoloxidase (PPO), in which biochemical and molecular properties can be varied with species, molting period, etc. The better understanding of PPO characteristics should pave a way for lowering melanosis, thereby extending the shelf life of… (More)
