The rate of spinning of silkworm larva (Bombyx mori.L) was slow at 22 degrees C and fast at 38 degrees C. The time taken for completion of cocoon was longest at 98 +/- 2% and least at 40 +/- 2% RH. However, good quality cocoons were spun at 22 degrees C and 65 +/- 5% RH, hence it would be advantageous to maintain this temperature and relative humidity at(More)
Antioxidative potential of methanolic leaf extract of Holarrhena antidysenterica was evaluated using hydroxyl radical, superoxide anion scavenging and reducing power assays. The antioxidant activity of the methanol extract increased in a concentration-dependent manner. The extract showed significant reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenging activity in all(More)
The present study was conducted to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of different extracts of Tinospora cordifolia against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced liver damage in rats. The pet ether, ethanol and aqueous extracts of various parts of the plant such as leaf, stem and root were tested at the dose of 200mg/kg body weight orally using Wistar(More)
UNLABELLED Plants have been an important source for discovery of anticancer compounds. With the current decline in the number of new molecular entities from the pharmaceutical industry, novel anticancer agents are being sought from traditional medicines; therefore the anticancer efficacy of many plants that are used in traditional medicine is yet to be(More)
Microbial and helminthes infections are the most common health problems in India; in developing countries they pose a large treat to public. These infections can affect most population in endemic areas with major economic and social consequences. In vitro antibacterial activity of a phytoconstituent, polyprenol isolated from the leaves of Kirganelia(More)
UNLABELLED The galls of Terminala chebula (Gaertn.) Retz. (Combretaceae) are used for the treatment of various diseases in folk medicine and has been found to posses anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-helmintic, anti-tyrosinase, and anti-aging activities. Considering the ethano-botanical and diverse pharmacological applications of galls of T. chebula,(More)
In present study, significant reduction in locomotor activity was observed in petroleum ether extract and ethanol extract of leaf, stem and root of T. cordifolia . when compared to control and rest of the extracts of T. cordifolia (except petroleum ether extract of leaf) also showed significant reduction in spontaneous locomotor activity. When compared to(More)
Productive efficiency of the apicultural industry depends upon improvements in bee breed, bee management and bee forage. The behavioural traits such as pollen carrying capacity, pollen and honey stores and colony population were compared for black and yellow strains of Indian honey bee Apis. cerana indica F. Observations of honey bees showing maximum(More)
Hemidesmus indicus is a pharmacologically important plant. The in vitro experiment by the disc diffusion method established that Hemidesmus indicus root extracts posses a bioactive compound, which inhibits the growth of the microorganisms. The root extracts of Hemidesmus indicus in different ratios of Petroleum ether and Ethyl acetate, tests have shown(More)
The petroleum ether extract, methanolic extracts and isolated compounds of B. diffusa and A. lanata were subjected to pharmacological screening on mice models. All the extracts obtained showed hepatoprotective activity in albino rats where the hepatotoxicity was induced by administering CCl4. Animals treated with doses of 100, 200 and 300mg/kg, of plant(More)
