Ageing in fishes.
Fishes show three types of senescence. Lampreys, eels and pacific salmon exhibit rapid senescence and sudden death at first spawning. The guppy, red panchax, medaka, platyfish, Indian murrel and manyExpand

Age-related changes in catalase activity and its inhibition by manganese (II) chloride in the brain of two species of poikilothermic vertebrates.
Two species of poikilothermic vertebrates, a teleost fish (Channa punctatus) and the garden lizard (Calotes versicolor) were used to study the effect of age on brain catalase (CT) activity and itsExpand

Effect of age on thermal inactivation of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase in liver and kidney of the male garden lizard.
A comparison between middle-aged and old lizards revealed no significant age change in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity of liver and kidney. Thermal inactivation at 51 +/- 1 degree CExpand

Genetic Diversity as Assessed by Agronomical Traits and Molecular Markers in Local Land Races of Green gram (Vigna radiata L.) Under Rice Fallow Condition
Twenty five greengram genotypes were analysed for assessment of genetic diversity through study of agronomical traits and molecular markers. Multivariate analysis of divergence among 25 green gramExpand

Effect of age on lipid peroxides, lipofuscin and ascorbic acid contents of the lungs of male garden lizard.
Oxidative damage was assessed through the estimation of lipid peroxides (LP) in the lungs of an ageing short-lived species of reptile, Calotes versicolor, commonly known as the garden lizard.Expand

Changes in catalase activity and its thermolability in liver and kidneys of ageing male garden lizard.
Catalase activity in liver and kidneys of male garden lizards remained unchanged during maturation, but showed an increase during ageing. Instead of inactivating catalase, thermal treatment at 60 +/-Expand

Effects of age and manganese (II) chloride on peroxidase activity of brain and liver of the teleost, Channa punctatus
Fish provide enormous spectrum of longevity and thus present the possibility of multiple mechanisms of senescence. Oxidative stress as a causative agent of senescence and the protective role ofExpand

Effect of age on lipid peroxidation in a short-lived species of reptile, Calotes versicolor.
The lipid peroxidation potential, measured as a thiobarbituric acid-reactive substance (TBA-RS) increased with advancing age in liver, brain and kidney of a short-lived species of reptile, CalotesExpand

Age related modifications of soluble proteins in various organs of male garden lizard, Calotes versicolor.
The oxidative modification of proteins measured as carbonyl derivatives increased with advancing age in the liver of male garden lizard. The same parameter did not show a significant change in otherExpand

Age-Related Effect of Aluminium on the Catalase Activities of the Brains of Two Species of Poikilothermic Vertebrates
Background: Although aluminium (Al) has been implicated in various neuropathological states with aging due to its involvement in neurotoxicity, the exact role of the metal ion is still unclear.Expand
