ABSTRACT
This research was conducted to asses the various bioactive compounds in the meat of some mudskippers founding in the Sungsang 2 Village, Banyuasin regency, South Sumatra. The research had been synthesized using n-hexane from February to May 2018 at Agricultural Technology Production Laboratory, Sriwijaya University. Subsequently, the mudskippers (Periopthalmus chrysospilos, Boleopthalmus boddarti, and Periophthalmodon schlosseri) extract was synthesized and further analysed by using GC-MS analysis. The study of bioactive compounds in mudskippers was carried out by evaporating in vacuum evaporation at 30°C. The results showed that Periopthalmus chrysospilos has five classes of bioactive compounds such as steroids, terpenoids, carotenoids, canabinoids, and alkaloids and Boleopthalmus boddarti has five classes of bioactive compounds such as steroids, carotenoids, terpenoids, bufadienolides, and carotatoxins. Furthermore, Boleopthalmus dussumieri has four classes of bioactive compounds such as steroids, carotenoids, terpenoids, and carotatoxins and Periophthalmodon schlosseri has three classes of bioactive compounds such as steroids, carotenoids and terpenoids. This research discuss the potential benefit of all bioactive compounds in mudskippers for alleviate and treating people with enuresis in child through the literature review of the most cited bioactive compounds.
