Antibacterial activity and protein content was studied in two species of octopus belonging to the family Octopoda. The highest zone of inhibition of about 34mm and 28mm were obtained against Vibrio parahaemolyticus and the protein content was 107.16μg/L and 136.20μg/L in Octopus dolfusii and Octopus aegina, respectively. SDS profile revealed bands of molecular weight of about 32.83 KDa to 72.36 KDa for both the species. Conclusively, the factors analyzed prove that the sample species play an… Expand

TLDR
The results highlight that suckers are a rich source of multifaceted peptides to develop alternative antimicrobial agents and food preservatives. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of methanolic extract and fractionated polysaccharide from Loligo duvauceli Orbingy 1848 and Doryteuthis sibogae Adam 1954 on human pathogenic microorganisms
TLDR
In the present study, in vitro antimicrobial activity of crude methanolic extract of squid body tissue and fractionated gladius polysaccharide of two squid from Cuddalore and Mudasalodai landing centre was evaluated and results were discussed in the light of positive and negative control. Expand
Understanding the cephalopod immune system based on functional and molecular evidence.
TLDR
This review summarizes the current status of the knowledge about the cephalopod immune system that seems to be far from simply, and point out a complex innate immunity in cepinghalopods. Expand
Anti-cancer Properties of Protein Hydrolysate from the Posterior Salivary Gland of Amphioctopus membranaceus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1832)
The present study was carried out to evaluate the anti-cancer properties of protein hydrolysate from posterior salivary gland (PSG) of Amphioctopus membranaceus. The sample (octopus) was initiallyExpand
Putative Antimicrobial Peptides of the Posterior Salivary Glands from the Cephalopod Octopus vulgaris Revealed by Exploring a Composite Protein Database
TLDR
The proteome of the posterior salivary glands of O. vulgaris is profiled using two sample preparation protocols combined with a shotgun-proteomics approach to confirm the production of enzymes and toxins by the PSGs and suggest their involvement in the first line of defense against microbes.

In vitro evaluation of antimicrobial activity of methanolic extract from selected species of Cephalopods on clinical isolates
TLDR
In the present study, the in vitro antimicrobial activity of crude methanolic extracts of six species of cephalopods from Cuddalore was studied and results were discussed in the light of positive and negative control apart from the concentrations tested. Expand
Investigation of antimicrobial and plasma coagulation property of some molluscan ink extracts: Gastropods and cephalopods
TLDR
Data suggest that, the presence of a number of factors in the ink secretion of mollusk and some of which are proteins in the range from 62 to 249 kDa which are all playing specific roles in the chemical defense mechanism of inking molluscan species. Expand
Bioactive properties of extracts from Australian dorid nudibranchs
TLDR
Antimicrobial activity was present in extracts of 80% of the 21 species assayed and in each of the five families investigated (Chromodorididae, Aegeridae, Phyllidiidae, Dorid family, and Dendrodorididae) and extracts of 10 species were toxic to mice and two of these 10 were Toxic to Artemia sp.

Cytotoxic and antibacterial properties of Mytilus galloprovincialis, Ostrea edulis and Crassostrea gigas (bivalve molluscs) hemolymph
TLDR
The results strongly support the view that bivalve molluscs possess sensitive immuno-defense mechanisms that will greatly aid the development of aquaculture systems by employing refined techniques of transgenesis. Expand
Antibacterial activities of oyster (Crassostrea virginica) and mussel (Mytilus edulis and Geukensia demissa) plasma
TLDR
The bactericidal activity of plasma proteins from these bivalves showed considerable interspecies variation and did not necessarily correlate directly with antiprotistan activity, but when present, antibacterial and antiprotistani activities seemed to be associated with plasma proteins rather than < 10-kDa plasma peptides.

Antimicrobial activity in the tissue extracts of five species of cowries Cypraea spp. (Mollusca: Gastropoda) and an ascidian Didemnum psammathodes (Tunicata: Didemnidae)
TLDR
Five species of Cypraea were assayed for their antibacterial and antifungal activity against 15 bacterial pathogens and 3 fungal pathogens and confirmed that the activity exhibited by C. errones was not diet derived. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of marine organisms collected off the coast of South East India
TLDR
In vitro antimicrobial screening of nine marine sponges and two seaweeds, collected from south east coast of India, against selected clinical isolates of bacteria and fungi was conducted, showing good antimicrobial activity against each of the microbe tested with the exception of Fusarium species. Expand
Involvement of Mytilins in Mussel Antimicrobial Defense*
TLDR
In an experimental model of infection, it is shown that a recruitment of hemocytes containing mytilins toward the injection site within hours following bacterial challenge, and that my tilins probably play a prominent role in killing intracellular bacteria after phagocytosis, and later an increase of mytilin-like material occurred in the plasma suggesting a secondary systemic role.

Mytilin B and MGD2, two antimicrobial peptides of marine mussels: gene structure and expression analysis.
TLDR
In adult mussels, the MGD2 gene may be over-expressed with physical and temperature stress, but that reduced expression occurs with bacterial challenge, and the genes encoding two isoforms of these peptides have been cloned and sequenced. Expand
Screening of cultivated seaweeds for antibacterial activity against fish pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
Screening results confirm the possible use of seaweeds as a source of antimicrobial compounds or as a health-promoting food for aquaculture and identify seaweeds, which possess activities against fish pathogenic bacteria. Expand
