In Malaysia, Monopterus albus is commonly found in rice fields, muddy ponds and swamp areas. Channa striatus have been widely used as a source of traditional medicines. The extracts of Malaysian local Monopterus albus and Channa straitus have been reported to have different bioactive properties and these properties can be used at molecular level as alternative tool for different disorders. The comparative analysis of antibacterial, antifungal, antiproliferative and CRE induced expression of downstream luc gene activities of both the extracts were performed. The bacteriostatic and antibacterial effects of both extracts were revealed beside higher antifungal activity of Channa straitus. The extracts from Monopterus albus showed higher levels of antiproliferative activity as compare to Channa straitus. The results were found supportive towards up regulation of hrluc by Monopterus albus extracts and down regulation by Channa striatus extracts. This is the first report on comparing the bioactive properties of Monopterus albus and Channa straitus. The results from this study demands a further research on identifying the bioactive molecules involve in these actions at a molecular level.
