Antioxidant properties of Portunus sanguinolentus chitosan fabricates crab shell 


Sakthidasan, V., Pugazhendy, K., Tamizhazhagan, V. and Jayanthi


The chitosan got from the chitin is the second most bottomless polysaccharide delivered after cellulose. It is the fundamental auxiliary segment of the exoskeletons of creatures like shellfish and is found in the cell dividers of growths moreover. Chitosan is delivered primarily from the crab shell squander. The present work is gone for the extraction of chitin from three spotted crab shell Portunus sanguinolentus and transformation of chitin into chitosan. The methanolic concentrate of the crab shell of Portunus sanguinolentus was subjected to standard subjective examination and the in-vitro cancer prevention agent movement was assessed by the assurance of aggregate cell reinforcement limit, 1.1-diphenyl-2 picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical searching action, Antioxidant action, and Nitric oxide potential. The examinations uncovered that the methanol concentrate of Co could productively rummage the free radicals in a dosage-dependent way. The outcomes were contrasted and the standard cancer prevention agent ascorbic corrosive. Along these lines, additional research might be justified to think about dynamic mixes of P. sanguinolentus that give the cancer prevention agent movement. The discoveries displayed here might have suggestions in the populace illness avoidance field.
