Different parts of plant species belonging to Solanaceae and Fabaceae families were screened for L-asparaginase enzyme (E.C. Among 34 plant species screened for L-asparaginase enzyme, Withania somnifera L. was identified as a potential source of the enzyme on the basis of high specific activity of the enzyme. The enzyme was purified and(More)
Withania somnifera L. has been traditionally used as a sedative and hypnotic. The present study was carried out for the purification, characterization, and in vitro cytotoxicity of L-asparaginase from W. somnifera L. L-Asparaginase was purified from the fruits of W. somnifera L. up to 95% through chromatography. The purified L-asparaginase was characterized(More)
l-Asparaginase (E.C. is used as a therapeutic agent in the treatment of acute childhood lymphoblastic leukemia. It is found in a variety of organisms such as microbes, plants and mammals. In plants, l-asparaginase enzymes are required to catalyze the release of ammonia from asparagine, which is the main nitrogen-relocation molecule in these(More)
The present study investigated differences in cadmium resistance of two wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars. The cvs. RAJ 4161 (Cd resistant) and PBW 343 (Cd sensitive) were treated with 200 mg(Cd) kg−1(soil) for 3, 5, 7, and 10 d. The effect of the Cd stress was estimated by measuring growth parameters, accumulation of cadmium, sulphur, and glutathione(More)
Until now numbers of efforts have been made to deduce the optimized conditions for the in vitro regeneration of tomato plant. The optimized conditions deduced are contradictory to each other and to validate the optimum conditions the present investigation was carried out which directs the use of 1.5 mg/l IAA + 1.5 mg/l Zeatin with full strength Murashige(More)
