Ecdysterone is a natural hormone found in insects and other invertebrates that is involved in regulating the body’s growth and development processes.In the aquaculture industry,ecdysterone is also widely used,its main role is to promote the growth of aquatic animals and increase production.Recent studies have shown that ecdysterone also has the potential to improve the disease resistance of aquatic animals,which is of great significance for enhancing the health and survival of aquatic animals.
Ecdysterone and disease resistance of aquatic animals
1,physiological defense mechanism:ecdysterone can enhance the immunity of aquatic animals by affecting the physiological defense mechanism.Studies have shown that ecdysterone can stimulate the proliferation and differentiation of immune cells,enhance antibody response,and improve the body’s immunity.
2,antioxidant effect:ecdysterone also has an antioxidant effect,which can remove reactive oxygen species and free radicals in the body and protect cells from oxidative damage.This antioxidant effect can enhance the resistance of aquatic animals to diseases and reduce the occurrence of diseases.
3,antibacterial and antiviral effects:ecdysterone itself has antibacterial and antiviral effects,can inhibit the growth and reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms.These antibacterial and antiviral effects can help aquatic animals resist infection by pathogens and viruses.
The application of ecdysterone in aquaculture
In aquaculture,ecdysterone is mainly used to promote the growth and production of aquatic animals.However,with the deepening of the research on the disease resistance of ecdysterone,more and more farmers began to try to use ecdysterone to improve the disease resistance of aquatic animals.In practical applications,farmers need to choose the appropriate amount and use method of ecdysterone according to different species and growth stages of aquatic animals.
Ecdysterone plays an important role in improving the disease resistance of aquatic animals.Studies have shown that ecdysterone can enhance the disease resistance of aquatic animals by influencing physiological defense mechanism,antioxidant action,antibacterial and antiviral action.However,the specific application of ecdysterone in aquaculture still needs further research and discussion.
Note:The potential benefits and applications presented in this article are derived from the published literature.
