An ethnopharmacological approach for biosynthesis of gold nanoparticles is being demonstrated using seed coat of Cajanus cajan. Medicinal value of capping molecule investigated for anticancer activity and results disclose its greater potential. The active principle of the seed coat [3-butoxy-2-hydroxypropyl 2-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl) acetate] is elucidated.(More)
The pathogenesis of glycerol-induced myoglobinuric acute renal failure involves ischemia, vascular congestion and reactive oxygen metabolites. In this study, we have investigated for the first time, the role of ferulic acid in attenuating glycerol-induced nephrotoxicity. Male Wistar rats were injected intramuscularly with 8 mL/kg body weight of 50%(More)
Type 2 diabetes is one of the major life threatening diseases worldwide these cases are progressing at an incremental rate every year and number of research works are going on to control the disease by targeting its enzymes or proteins. The medicinal properties of Vitex negundo and one of its compounds, 1, 2 disubstituted idopyranose (C 23 H 28 O 12) was(More)
The present study revealed the toxic effect of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in Artemia nauplii and evaluated the mortality rate, hatching percentage, and genotoxic effect in Artemia nauplii/cysts. The AgNPs were commercially purchased and characterized using field emission scanning electron microscope with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Nanoparticles(More)
Low vision and blindness are important health problems that affect millions of people throughout the world. The most common and important pathologies are diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma as well as cataracts. The latter consists of an opacification of the lens of the eye which impedes the passage of light and represents one(More)
Distribution of heavy metals and its associated histological perturbations were studied in the soft tissues of Perna viridis collected from Ennore estuary and compared with the less polluted Kovalam coast. The concentration of copper, lead, zinc, cadmium, manganese and iron were quantified in gills, digestive gland and adductor muscle. The results showed(More)
