Tamil Muthu P, Selvaraj DAbstract:
Turbo brunneus is one of the predatory gastropod occurring tropical and subtropical coastal areas. In recent years, a significant number of novel metabolites with potent pharmacological properties have been discovered from the marine organisms. In the present study bioactive compounds from methanolic flesh extract of marine gastropod T. brunneus was purified by TLC analysis, and the purified TLC fraction was subjected to GCMS analysis. The results revealed the presence of eight compounds. Among them, the dominant bioactive compounds were Cyclononasiloxane, octadecamethyl-, 6-(Diphenylphosphoryl)- 3, 4-bis (diisopropylamino)- 5-pyrrolidino pyridazine and Epinephrine-tetratms. The present study indicated that the flesh extract of T. brunneus is a potential source of novel bioactive compounds.Pages: 257-259 | 849 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
