Molluscicidal Activity of Different Organic Root Extract of Potentilla fulgens Against Liver Fluke Vector Snail Indoplanorbis exustus

Pradeep Kumar , Kumari Sunita and Dinesh Kumar Singh

Abstract:
Background and Objectives: Snail Indoplanorbis exustus is an intermediate host of liver fluke. The control of snail population below threshold levels is major tool in reducing the incidences of fasciolosis. The present research was designed for studying the effect of dried root powder of Potentilla fulgens and their different products use as molluscicides against host snail I. exustus. Materials and Methods: The molluscicidal studies of different organic extracts and column purified fraction of P. fulgens were continuously observed for 96 h at different concentration. Mortality was observed for 24, 48, 72 and 96 h exposure. Six aquariums were setup for each concentration. The control group animals were kept in the equal volume of water under similar conditions without treatment. Results: The dried root powder of P. fulgens at 24 h and 96 h LC50 against I. exustus was 170.33, 140.29 mg L1, respectively. Among different organic extracts, ethanol extract was more toxic than other organic extract. The ethanol extract of P. fulgens was more toxic (24 h LC50-112.75 mg L1) against I. exustus. The 24 h and 96 h LC50 of column purified fraction of dried root powder of P. fulgens was 55.63 and 33.75 mg L1, respectively. Conclusion: The present study revealed that the different product of P. fulgens has potent molluscicidal activity and their product may be used as potent source of molluscicides.
