Abstract The aim of this work was to assess the relationships between lead (Pb) and uranium (U) exposure, lipid peroxidation and some enzyme activities in a mollusc (Cohicula sp.), an earthwormExpand
Cytotoxic effect of Cyperus rotundus rhizome extract on human cancer cell lines.
The wild weed Cyperus rotundus is commonly used as traditional medicine in different parts of the world. Sequential extraction of C. rotundus rhizome with solvents of different polarity namelyExpand
Purification and characterization of a sialic acid specific lectin from the hemolymph of the freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii.
A naturally occurring hemagglutinin was detected in the serum of the freshwater crab, Paratelphusa jacquemontii (Rathbun). Hemagglutination activity with different mammalian erythrocytes suggested aExpand
Phenoloxidase activity in humoral plasma, hemocyanin and hemocyanin separated proteins of the giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii.
Hemocyanin is a copper containing protein and its role in the immune function of phenoloxidase (PO) activity was investigated in the giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii. Hemocyanin,Expand
Opsonic function of sialic acid specific lectin in freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii
The sialic acid specific humoral lectin, Pjlec of the freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii was investigated for its opsonin function with rabbit erythrocyte as target cell for phagocytosis byExpand
Immune response of anti-lectin Pjlec antibody in freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii.
Sialic acid specific lectin Pjlec isolated from serum of the freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii served as an antigen for the production of immunoglobulin (Ig) in Balb/c mice sera.Expand
Activation of phenoloxidase activity by humoral lectin in hemocytes of freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii.
The lectin, Pjlec isolated from the hemolymph of the freshwater crab Paratelphusa jacquemontii hemagglutinated (HA) with mice, rabbit and rat erythrocytes. However, the lectin failed to agglutinateExpand
Hemocytes and hemocytic responses in the mole crab Emerita emeritus (Linnaeus 1767).
The mole crab, Emerita emeritus, collected from the sandy shores of a Chennai beach, was investigated for cellular immune responses based on the morphology and defensive reactions of the circulatingExpand
