ISOLATION AND PURIFICATION OF ANTI-TUMOR ENZYME L-ASPARAGINASE FROM SOIL ISOLATES

16 different bacteria were isolated from soil collected from and near Aurangabad city. All of the isolates were screened for L-asparaginase activity using modified M-9 medium. Spectro-photometric determination of L-asparaginase was done, and it was partially purified using ammonium sulphate precipitation. Out of the bacterial species screened only two were found to be producers of L-asparaginase. ...

ANTIOXIDANT EFFECT OF CRUDE WATER EXTRACT OF VETIVERIA ZIZANIOIDES (GRAMINEAE) IN MICE WITH ACETAMINOPHEN INDUCED HEPATOTOXICITY

Acetaminophen (APAP) is widely used as an analgesic and antipyretic drug. The large dose of APAP results in severe hepatic necrosis due to the oxidative stress. This work evaluates the antioxidant activity of crude water extract of Vetiveria zizanioides roots against a single dose of APAP induced acute hepatotoxicity. Mice were treated with 300 mg/kg of APAP dissolved in saline and fasted for 16 h...
