The antioxidant potential of methanol extracts of green-lipped mussel (Perna viridis)were evaluated using tests such as 2,2-diphenyl- 1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay, reducingpotential, scavenging capacity of reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)and hydroxyl radical (OH·), and inhibition of lipid peroxidation (LPX) and protein carbonyl (PC).The scavenging activity of DPPH radical, H2O2 and OH· radicals increased in dose dependentmanner. The reducing power also increased significantly with increasing concentration but theeffect was less sharp as compared to ascorbic acid as standard. Inhibition of LPX and PC levelsshown by extract indicates its potential to protect the cell damage from ROS. Present investigationforms a first comprehensive report on the nutraceutical property of P.viridis.
