George, K C and Ittoop, Gijo and Thomas, P C and Sobhana, K S and Sanil, N K and Paulton, M P and Nisha, P C (2001) Haemolymph protein profile of the edible oyster, Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) exposed to different salinities. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 48 (4). pp. 391-396.
The haemolymph total protein concentration and protein profile of C madrasensis exposed to different salinities were studied. The animals were maintained at salinities 6 ,12,24 and 36 ppt for one month. The serum total protein concentration showed significant reduction at 6 and 36 ppt. The haemolymph protein profile obtained by SDS-PAGE also varied with difference in salinities. There were four bands with molecular weight 86,74,31 and 26 kDa in all the four groups. The intensity of bands was higher in groups maintained at 12 and 24 ppt compared to other groups. The haemolymph of animals maintained at 6 ppt also showed three additional bands of 60, 52 and 13 kDa that were feebly expressed.
