Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Influence of stem extract of banana (family Musaceae), was studied on glycolic acid oxidase (GAO) and lactate dehydrogenase enzymes, calcium, phosphorus, oxalate and glycolic acid in liver tissues of sodium glycolate-induced hyperoxaluric rats. Activity of GAO was significantly lowered in the extract-treated rats compared to that of the glycolate-fed rats. LDH increased significantly in glycolate administered rats when compared with the extract-treated rats. The levels of calcium, phosphorus, oxalate and glycolic acid during hyperoxaluric state showed remarkable alterations in liver tissue.
