Marine molluscs have emerged as an important source containing numerous unique secondary metabolites which could be used for development of new drugs against many communicable and non-communicable deadly diseases. The current status of biologically active compounds extracted, identified and isolated from marine molluscs and tested for their anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activities together with important compounds isolated from them such as Dolastatin 10 & 15, Kahalalide F…

Bioactive Peptides from Marine Molluscs – A Review
TLDR
This review highlights some of the bioactive peptides that have been obtained from marine molluscs as well the challenges facing bioprospecting of valuable peptides from marinemollusc sources.
Targeted metabolomics to investigate antimicrobial activity of itaconic acid in marine molluscs
TLDR
Insight is provided into the biosynthesis of ITA and suggests its role in antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities in the innate immune system through the measurement of metabolic and immune alterations in tissues following the challenge.
Marine cuttlefish derived 2H-benzochromenone: Pharachromenone as a dual inhibitor of pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase-2.
TLDR
The therapeutic potential of a marine cuttlefish-originated food constituent against inflammatory conditions is recognized, and could be anticipated as a high-value functional food lead to minimize oxidative stress-related inflammatory disorders.
Functional Properties of Ethyl Acetate-methanol Extract of Commonly Edible Molluscs
ABSTRACT Marine molluscs are consumed as culinary delicacies and represent a relatively untapped source of natural functional food ingredients. The bioactive potential of ethyl acetate-methanol
Marine, freshwater, and terrestrial snails as models in the biomedical applications
A snail is a word used for most of the members of the molluscan gastropods that has a calcareous shell that is large enough to contain the animal body (Jörger et al., 2010). It can be found in every
Evaluation of Analgesic Activities of Extracts of Two Marine Molluscs: Tympanotonus fuscatus var radula (Linnaeus) and Pachymelania aurita (Müller)
TLDR
The results from both models indicate that the site of their analgesic action is probably peripheral, and the extracts had no analgesic effect in tail-flick test up to the highest dose tested.
SURVEY AND PARTIAL CHARACTERIZATION OF AGGLUTININS IN THE HEPATOPANCREAS EXTRACT OF THREE MARINE GASTROPODS, TROCHUS RADIATUS (GMELIN, 1791), TURBINELLA PYRUM (LINNAEUS, 1767) AND BABYLONIA ZEYLANICA (BRUGUIERE, 1789)
TLDR
The present work provides the basic information needed for further research on the isolation and purification of the agglutinins of Trochus radiatus and Babylonia zeylanica, which can be studied for their pharmacological properties and tested for their biomedical potential in the diagnosis and treatment of several fatal and difficult-to-treat diseases.

Therapeutic health booster: seaweeds against several maladies
TLDR
A state of art is highlighted on the medicinal value of seaweeds and their exploitation scenario on a global scale and the present limited use needs to be diversified into several applications.
Antibacterial activity of marine molluscs from Portonovo region
TLDR
Ethanol extracts of (Chicoreus virgineus) hypobranchial gland and egg capsules of Rapana rapiformis exhibited broad spectral antibacterial activities and this can be used to develop potential antibacterial drugs.
Antineoplastic agents. 545. Isolation and structure of turbostatins 1-4 from the Asian marine mollusk Turbo stenogyrus.
TLDR
The cancer cell line bioassay-guided separation of an extract from the marine mollusk Turbo stenogyrus led to the isolation of four new cerebrosides designated turbostatins 1-4 (1-4), which exhibited significant cancer cell growth inhibition against the murine P388 lymphocytic leukemia and a panel of human cancer cell lines.
