Evaluation of the anti-enteropooling and anti-diarrheal activities of L-Citrulline in mice

L-Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that plays key role in the metabolism of nitric oxide. These study investigated the anti-diarrheal activities of L-Citrulline using castor oil induced diarrhea and enteropooling model in mice. The effect of L-Citrulline on normal intestinal motility was also evaluated using charcoal maker. Test groups received L-citrulline 300 and 600 mg/kg respectively, positive control groups...

Role of rutin as an antidiarrhoeal as tested in mice

This study investigated the efficacy of Rutin, a very safe naturally occurring bioflavonoid, in treatment of diarrhoea using appropriate animal models. The effects of Rutin on percentage inhibition of Castor oil-induced diarrhoea, intestinal fluid accumulation and BaSO4 meal transit were investigated in BALB/c Swiss albino mice. In each stage, 20 adult mice grouped into four (n = 5) were used. Groups I through IV were...

A Short Review of Molecular Diagnostic Techniques in Biological Sciences

The developments of nucleic acid-based testing have been necessitated by newer approaches to therapy and disease diagnosis through techniques involving genetic analysis. This has been achieved by the introduction of molecular diagnostic techniques that target the biosynthesis interactions between specific biomolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins. These molecular diagnostic techniques include molecular cloning,...

GFSKLYFamide-like neuropeptide is expressed in the female gonad of the sea cucumber, Holothuria scabra

Neuropeptides are mediators of neuronal signalling, controlling a wide range of physiological processes that cut across many organisms. GFSKLYFamide is a neuropeptide that belongs to the Echinoderm SALMFamide group of peptides. This study was aimed at determining the expression of GFSKLYFamide-like neuropeptide in the female gonad of the sea cucumber Holothuria scabra. Ten female H. scabra weighing between 62 and 175 g...
