Abstract

ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES OF TWO EDIBLE BIVALVE MERETRIX MERETRIX AND M. CASTA

Dr. S. Sugesh*, Dr. P. Mayavu and Dr. M. Suriya

ABSTRACT

To evaluates In vitro antioxidant properties of two edible bivalves Meretrix meretrix and M. casta. Both bivalve extracts MME and MCE showed effective antioxidant activities, reducing power, hydrogen donor activity, free radical scavenging activity and ferrous iron chelating ability. Dose dependent radical scavenging activity was observed, increased concentration showed increased radical scavenging activities and results were compared to known antioxidant compound ascorbic acid and BHA. As compare to MCE, MME showed more significant antioxidant activities at In vitro modelling assays. FT-IR spectroscopy analysis of both extracts MME and MCE showed various levels of peaks, it meant for the various characteristic functional groups were present in the both bivalve extracts. The result indicates that both bivalve species had efficient antioxidant properties.
