Electromyographic (EMG) and electrodiagnostic studies were made on sciatic nerve-anterior tibialis muscle in vivo in rats administered with a sublethal dose of Parthenium hysterophorus dry leaf powder 100 mg/100 g body weight of rat. Nerve-evoked and muscle-evoked compound muscle action potentials were recorded at different frequencies of stimulations and(More)
Thevetia peruviana seed carboxyl esterase was employed as a biosensor for the detection of selenium compounds by an enzyme inhibition technique on paper chromatograms. The selenium compounds (sodium selenite and selenium dioxide) appeared as white spots on a magenta background due to the inhibition of Thevetia peruviana seed carboxyl esterase (substrate(More)
Phenylmercuric acetate can be detected by horse liver acetone powder succinate dehydrogenase inhibition, using a mixture of 2-(4-iodophenyl)-3-(4-nitrophenyl)-5-phenyl tetrazolium chloride (INT), sodium succinate, and N-methylphenazonium methosulfate as the chromogenic reagent. The simple cleanup involves extraction of phenylmercuric acetate in chloroform(More)
A simple, sensitive, and rapid method is described for the quantitative estimation of ng amounts of parathion (O,O-diethyl O-p-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate) as paraoxon (O,O-diethyl O-p-nitrophenyl phosphate) on thin layer chromatograms. Paraoxon is detected by inhibition, using p-nitrobenzenediazonium fluoroborate as the chromogenic reagent. This(More)
A simple, sensitive, and rapid method is described for the quantitative estimation of nanogram amounts of methyl parathion (O, O-dimethyl O-p-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate) as methyl paraoxon (O,O-dimethyl O-p-nitrophenyl phosphate) on thin layer chromatograms. Methyl paraoxon is detected by pig liver acetone powder cholinesterase inhibition, using(More)
A simple, sensitive, and rapid colorimetric method is described for determining methyl parathion (O,O-dimethyl-O-p-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate) and methyl paraoxon (O,O-dimethyl-O-p-nitrophenyl phosphate), using p-nitrobenzene diazonium fluoroborate as the chromogenic salt. This colorimetric method is more sensitive than are other colorimetric methods(More)
The Michaelis-Menten constant (Km) for cholinesterases from different liver sources, the inhibitor concentration for 50% inhibition (I50), and the lower limit of estimation were determined for 3 organophosphorus pesticides and their oxygen analogs. Maximum sensitivity in organophosphorus pesticide determinations can be achieved by choosing the enzyme source(More)
