ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE We characterized saponins as active constituents from traditionally used antidiabetic plant Helicteres isora. AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the changes in the gene expression of the glucose and lipid metabolism regulating genes in C57BL/KsJ-db/db mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS C57BL/KsJ-db/db mice were divided into four different groups; one diabetic control, the mice in other three groups were treated with methanol extract (100 mg/kg), saponins (100 mg/kg) and… CONTINUE READING
