Preliminary studies in some aspects of amino acid biosynthesis in juveniles of Penaeus monodon Fabricius: I. Incorporation of 14C from (U-14C) acetate into amino acids to precipitable proteins
MetadataShow full item record
Ion-exchange chromatography in conjunction with radioisotope labelling techniques were used to investigate the incorporation of 14C from (U-14C) - acetate into amino acids of precipitable proteins in P. monodon juveniles. Highest 14C radioactivity was found in the adidic amino acids, aspartic acid and glutamic acid. Little but significant radioactivity was observed in alanine, cysteine, glycine, proline and serine. Amino acids which incorporated little or no 14C were arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tyrosine and valine. It appears that P. monodon juveniles could not synthesize these amino acids from acetate. The essential nature of these amino acids in P. monodon is discussed.

An evaluation of indigenous protein sources as potential component in the diet formulation for tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon, using essential amino acid index (EAAI) Peñaflorida, Veronica D. (Elsevier, 1989)The essential amino acid index (EAAI) could be used in screening potential protein sources. However, when formulating diets, EAAI should be supported with feeding trials and digestibility tests to determine the extent of ...
Quantitative dietary requirements of postlarval tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon, for histidine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine and tryptophan Millamena, Oseni M.; Teruel, M. B.; Kanazawa, A.; Teshima, S. (Elsevier, 1999)The quantitative requirements of postlarvae Penaeus monodon for essential amino acids were determined through a series of feeding experiments.
