We have examined the protective effect of taurine on the myocardial antioxidant defense system in isoprenaline (isoproterenol)-induced myocardial infarction in rats, an animal model of myocardial infarction in man. Levels of diagnostic marker enzymes in plasma, lipid peroxides and reduced glutathione, and the activity of glutathione-dependent antioxidant(More)
This study was designed to examine the effects of squalene on tissue antioxidant status in isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in male albino rats. Levels of diagnostic marker enzymes [alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and creatine phosphokinase (CPK)] in plasma, lipid peroxides, reduced(More)
We studied the cardioprotective effect of squalene on isoprenaline-induced myocardial infarction in male albino rats with respect to changes in the levels of lipid components in plasma and heart tissue. Prior administration of 2% squalene in feed for 45 days significantly reduced the isoprenaline-induced elevation in the levels of cholesterol,(More)
Considerable interest has been developed on environmentally friendly technologies for wood protection. The current investigation focused on the development of an ecofriendly wood preservative formulation from coconut shell pyrolytic oil distillate (CSPOD). Rubberwood specimens treated with CSPOD were exposed to brown rot and white rot fungi and the efficacy(More)
The termites, wood decay fungi and insect/marine borers cause immense damage to wood and wood products. Shellac, produced by lac insects, is used in various applications including formulation of varnishes. Shellac based varnishes were tested for their efficacy in protecting wood in terrestrial and marine conditions. Tests were carried out as per BIS(More)
Among several factors leading to biodegradation of wood, termites are one of the most damaging agents to wooden structures worldwide. To avoid environmental pollution and health problems caused by the use of synthetic pesticides, wood preservation research is currently focusing on discovery and application of termiticides derived from plants.
