Lovastatin, an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, was produced by submerged fermentation using Monascus purpureus MTCC 369. Five nutritional parameters screened using Plackett–Burman experimental design were optimized by Box–Behnken factorial design of response surface methodology for lovastatin production in shake flask cultures. Maximum lovastatin production(More)
To investigate the involvement of cytochrome P450 (P450) enzyme induction and the effect of different P450 modifiers in the neurobehavioral toxicity of deltamethrin, deltamethrin (10 mg/kg; orally for 1 day) was administered to young male albino Wistar rats, or in rats pretreated with phenobarbital (PB; 80 mg/kg, ip for 5 days), an inducer of P450 2B1/2B2(More)
Prenatal exposure to different doses (0.25, or 0.5 or 1.0 mg/kg corresponding to 1/320 th or 1/160 th or 1/80 th of LD50) of deltamethrin to the pregnant Wistar rats from gestation day 5 to 21 were found to produce a dose dependent increase in the activity of cytochrome P450 (CYP) dependent 7-ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD),(More)
The present study investigated the effects of Punica granatum aqueous extract (PgAq) on streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats by measuring fasting blood glucose, lipid profiles (atherogenic index), lipid peroxidation (LPO) and activities of both non-enzymatic and enzymatic antioxidants. Diabetes was induced by single intraperitoneal injection of STZ(More)
Oral administration of 5 mg/kg body weight of deltamethrin, an a-cyano type II pyrethroid insecticide once a day for 1, 7, 15 and 21 consecutive days to young Druckerey rats (6–8 weeks old) produced a time dependent increase in the activity of cytochrome P450 (P450) dependent 7-ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) and 7-pentoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase (PROD)(More)
The phytochemical investigation of the stem bark of Tinospora cordifolia Miers (Menispermaceae) has afforded four new compounds, named tinosporafuranol, tinosporafurandiol, tinosporaclerodanol, and tinosporaclerodanoid, along with beta-sitosterol, and their stereostructures have been elucidated correspondingly as 4-seco-cleroda-19-ol-13-furanoid,(More)
Five new constituents, 5,4'-dihydroxy-7,3'-dimethoxyflavone-4'-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl-(2a→1b)-2a-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl-(2b→1c)-2b-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl-2c-octadecanoate (1), 5,4'-dihydroxy-7,3'-dimethoxyflavone-4'-O-α-D-xylopyranosyl-(2a→1b)-2a-O-α-D-xylopyranosyl-(2b→1c)-2b-O-α-D-xylopyranosyl-(2c→1d)-2c-O-α-D-xylopyranosyl-2d-octadecanoate (2),(More)
Pinus roxburghii Sarg. (syn. Pinus longifolia Roxb.) (Pinaceae), found in the Himalayan region, furnishes an oleoresin which is used as insecticides, disinfectants and liver disorders. P. roxburghii are reported to have wound healing, cytotoxic, antibacterial, antifungal and spasmolytic actions. The plant also shows beneficial effects in the treatment of(More)
