    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 (C2H5OAc/CH3OH) extract of molluscs Uroteuthis duvaucelii, Amphioctopus marginatus, Crassostrea madrasensis, and Sepiella inermis were demonstrated using different in vitro systems. The C2H5OAc/CH3OH extract of A. marginatus displayed greater 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazil (IC90 1.76 mg mL−1) radical quenching capacity along with potential hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase (HMGCR)-inhibiting activity (IC90 1.21 mg mL−1) and angiotensin converting enzyme-I inhibitory property (ACE-I) (IC90 0.87 mg mL−1) compared to those displayed by other molluscs. The organic extract of S. inermis set forth significantly higher pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase inhibitory property (IC90 1.96 mg mL−1) along with potential antidiabetic activity as determined by dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) antagonistic activities (IC90 2.62mgmL−1, P < .05). Significant correlations were observed between bioactive properties and electronegative groups of organic extracts of a mollusc. The free radical quenching property of the extracts exhibited a positive correlation towards other bioactivities, implicating the role of antioxidant property of the compounds in the extract to inhibit lifestyle ailments. The present study indicated that S. inermis and A. marginatus could be utilized as functional food ingredients to combat hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and inflammation-related risks.
