The incorporation of nanoparticles in industrial and biomedical applications has increased significantly in recent years, yet their hazardous and toxic effects have not been studied extensively. While standard toxicological test methods are generally capable of detecting the toxic effects, the choice of relevant methods for nanomaterials is still discussed. Among the various oxide nanomaterials, silica nanoparticles are widely used in biological applications that include nano-medicine. But studi...

Tribulus terrestris is a traditionally known non-toxic aphrodisiac herb for maleness. It was experimented recently to understand the effect and mechanism on mono sex production in Poecilia latipinna. It would help to develop a new eco-friendly way to masculinize P. latipinna, since males have higher commercial value than females. The different concentration (100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 mg/L) of T. terrestris extract and a control were tested for their effect on sex transformation/reversal in P. l...

The potential protective role of Tribulus terrestris in acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity in Oreochromis mossambicus was investigated. The effect of oral exposure of acetaminophen (500 mg/kg) in O. mossambicus at 24-h duration was evaluated. The plant extract (250 mg/kg) showed a remarkable hepatoprotective activity against acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity. It was judged from the tissue-damaging level and antioxidant levels in liver, gill, muscle and kidney tissues. Further acetaminophen ...

Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's) are the prominent and most common pollutants in aquatic environments, particularly in marine water. The discharge of hydrocarbons into the sea might be of great concern for marine species living close to dumping sites. Therefore, toxicological properties of hydrocarbons released into marine environments need to be evaluated. PAH pollution potential may be predicted by assessing the induction of hepatic cytochrome P450-associated enzyme activity. The inducibility...

It is the fat that Meretrix casta is the sturdy clams that live even in elevated level of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, caused by extreme population in water. Mixture of pollutants released in to the water that affect the aquatic life, could be determined by the tissue (liver, mantle & gill) sample. ALP activity can help predict the surviving water quality. The activity of ALP is likely to reflect the metabolic state of fish / shellfish sample from the different regions. In the present st...
