Title: Effect of Pyridoxine on Growth, Metabolism and Cellular Activity of Macrobrachium rosenbergii
Author: Pyroja,S; Biju,M P; Paulose,C S
Abstract: Effect of pyridoxine on growth, metabolism and cellular activity of freshwater prawn Macrobrachiuni rosenbergii was studied. Postlarvae (PL-10) of M. rosenbergii were fed with clam meat containing various concentrations of pyridoxine. After 30 days RNA and DNA of the abdominal tissues were estimated. Length, weight and RNA to DNA ratio increased significantly with increasing concentrations of pyridoxine. The effect of pyridoxine on the metabolic enzyme, malate dehydrogenase, was also studied. Vmax showed a significant decrease and the (Km) showed a significant increase in experimental groups compared to control.
