Quantitative Protein Profile of Three Macrobrachium Species during Reproductive Cycle

S. Shanju and P. Geraldine

The total protein content of Hepatopancreas, hemolymph and ovary of adult freshwater prawns Macrobrachium malcomsonii (H. Milne Edwards) Macrobrachium rosenbergii, (H. Milne Edwards) Macrobrachium lammarei (H. Milne Edwards) was studied in relationship with gonadosomatic index during different stages (early-mature, mature and spent) of reproductive cycle. The gonadosomatic index increased drastically during maturation in all three species, when compared to the respective early-mature ovaries. The protein content in different organs was estimated by Bradford method. The protein content in hepatopancreas and hemolymph recorded a gradual decline during maturation stages while a marked increase was noted in ovary during maturation and at the spent stage, protein content was highest in hepatopancreas, whereas very lowest in hemolymph and ovary during the reproductive cycle in all three freshwater prawn species.
