The effect of chronic treatment with datura (seed) extract was studied to investigate its effect on the energy metabolism and peroxidative activities in the brain of rats. Datura treatment was found to cause an increase in the activity of brain lipid peroxidase and catalase, while it caused a decrease in the activity of fructose diphosphate aldolase and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme. A marked reduction was noted in the protein, DNA and RNA contents of datura administered rats.
