Abstract

By using high-performance liquid chromatography, UV-VIS-spectra and mass spectra (FAB MS) in tissues of bivalve mollusc Anadara inaequivalvis (Bruguiere, 1789) there are identified seven kinds of carotenoids: trans- and cis-pectenolon, alloxanthin, pectenol A, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and diatoxanthin. Their quantitative ratio in hepatopancreas, gills, and foot of the animals was determined. There was revealed negative correlation (R2 about 0.9) between content of several carotenoids (trans- and cis-pectenolon, zeaxanthin, alloxanthin, and diatoxanthin) in tissues and activities of antioxidant enzymes (catalase and superoxide dismutase). The presence of competitive relations between these molecular systems is assumed and their underlying causes are discussed.
