Keywords: picotechnology, picoscale, nano-protein adducts, muscle contraction, fish

The present report shows the emerging trend of picotechnology in bioengineering, Heteropneustes fossilis fish protein characterization by PAGE-gel electrophoresis, 10-100 nm nanoadducts by electron microscopy with possibility of nanogel-peptide(polyacylate-polyethylene-iron oxide) adducts as predictors of fish muscle proteins participating to enhance the capacity of tropomyosin-calcium hyperexcitation to measure it at picoscale in muscle tissue. In conclusion, the nanogel-protein adduct as bio-technology has tremendous commercial potentials to design marine diets, aquaculture, nanogel-drug carriers.
