Abstract
Tribulus terrestris is a traditionally known non-toxic aphrodisiac herb for maleness. It was experimented recently to understand the effect and mechanism on mono sex production in Poecilia latipinna. It would help to develop a new eco-friendly way to masculinize P. latipinna, since males have higher commercial value than females. The different concentration (100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 mg/L) of T. terrestris extract and a control were tested for their effect on sex transformation/reversal in P. latipinna by immersing the newly born young ones in the respective concentrations for 2 mo. The obtained results indicate that a dose dependant masculinization is obtained due to T. terrestris administration, which improved the male proportion. Histological results revealed that the testes of fish treated with T. terrestris extract contained all stages of spermatogenesis, clearly demonstrating that the administration of T. terrestris extract to P. latipinna stimulated spermatogenesis. Thus, it is discernible that 0-d-old hatchlings of P. latipinna exposed to T. terrestris extract orient/reverse their sex more towards maleness besides yielding better growth and spermatogenesis which is a mandate for fancy fish industry.

The influence of Tribulus terrestris on the activities of testicular enzyme in Poecilia latipinna was assessed in lieu of reproductive manipulation. Different concentrations of (100, 150, 200, 250, and 300 mg) Tribulus terrestris extract and of a control were tested for testicular activity of enzymes in Poecilia latipinna for 2 months. The testis and liver were homogenized separately in 0.1 mol/l potassium phosphate buffer (0.1 mol/l, pH 7.2). The crude homogenate was centrifuged, and supernatan...

This research objective was to investigate the effects of two synthetic androgens, 17 α-methyltestosterone (MT) and mesterolone, on sex reversal in flowerhorn fish by hormonal immersion with the aim of introducing a new method for producing all-male flowerhorn progeny. In this study, 6 days post-hatched fry (swim-up stage) were immersed with either MT or mesterolone at different concentrations (125, 250 or 500 μgL -1 ). One hundred and forty swim-up fry were allocated to each of 21 100-L aquaria...

Although the overall pattern and timing of gonadal sex differentiation have been established in a considerable number of teleosts, the ultrastructure of early stages of gonadal development is not well docu- mented. In this study, gonads from larval and juvenile stages of laboratory-reared Cichlasoma dimerus were ex- amined at the light-microscopic and ultrastructural levels. This freshwater species adapts easily to captivity and spawns with high frequency during 8 months of the year, providing a...

The phytochemical investigation of the aerial parts of Tribulus terrestris of Bulgarian origin has resulted in the isolation of the novel furostanol saponin 1, named tribol, together with the known spirostanol saponins 2 and 3 and sitosterol glucoside. The structure of tribol was determined as (25R)-furost-5(6)-ene-3β,16,26-triol-3-O-α-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)-[α-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→4)]-β-glucopyranoside (1) by spectral analysis, including extensive 1D and 2D-NMR experiments.

Two new steroid saponins, named terrestrinins A (1) and B (2), along with six known compounds were isolated from the Chinese medicine herb Tribulus terrestris, and their chemical structures were elucidated as 26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(25S)-furostan-4(5),20(22)-diene-3,12-dione (1) and 26-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(25S)-5α-furostane-3β,22α,26-triol-3-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl(1→3)-[(β-D-xylopyranosyl(1→2)]-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→4)-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl(1→2)]-β-D-galactopyranoside (2) on the basis of spectrosco...

Abstract In a partial life-cycle test, the impact of 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2) and 17α-methyltestosterone (MT) on juvenile zebrafish was evaluated by use of vitellogenin measurements and gonadal development. Exposure to EE2 (1–25 ng/l) resulted in a dose-dependent increase in vitellogenin production starting at 2 ng/l. Significant changes in sex ratios in female direction were detected at 1 ng/l, with complete sex reversal taking place after exposure to 2 ng/l. No intersex fish were observed af...

The present study was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of Basella alba and Tribulus terrestris for induction of masculinisation in Nile tilpia. B. alba leaves and T. terrestris seeds were extracted with water, ethanol, methanol, dichloromethane, hexane and successive methanol and mixed sex juveniles of Nile tilapia were subjected to dietary treatment with the extracts at the concentration of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 gm/kg feed. Treatment with both the plants showed no adverse effect on general fish health...

There is a constant need to increase productivity in aquaculture, particularly to improve growth rate, feed utilization as well as stress resistance of fish. Because of consumer concerns and strict regulations in many countries, the use of synthetic chemicals, hormones and antibiotics is becoming unviable and natural compounds are more acceptable to the public. A wide variety of chemical compounds are found in plants, and many of them have been shown to have beneficial effects on appetite, growt...

Tribulus terrestris (family Zygophyllaceae), commonly known as Gokshur or Gokharu or puncture vine, has been used for a long time in both the Indian and Chinese systems of medicine for treatment of various kinds of diseases. Its various parts contain a variety of chemical constituents which are medicinally important, such as flavonoids, flavonol glycosides, steroidal saponins, and alkaloids. It has diuretic, aphrodisiac, antiurolithic, immunomodulatory, antidiabetic, absorption enhancing, hypoli...

Synthetic sex reversal hormone used in controlling Tilapia population under culture condition has a perceived public health risk. This study therefore examined the prospect of utilization Tribulus terrestris as sex reversal agent in Oreochromis niloticus . Five pairs of Oreochromis niloticus (350±25.8) g in a ratio of 1:1 male to female were used for fry production. Four hundred and fifty day-old fry were randomly distributed into 18 experimental tanks (30 L capacity) and fed 50% crude protein d...
