Effect of Celastrus paniculatus
on trace elements of cerebellum in ageing albino rats
Kamal Saini, A. Chaudhary, R. K. Sharma
Background: In Indian traditional system of medicine
Celastrus paniculatus extract has been used to improve intellect, memory
and for the treatment of various mental disorders. Purpose:
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of this
medicinal plant on serum biochemistry. Methods: Ethanolic
extract of seed of Celastrus paniculatus (2g/kg/body weight) was orally
administrated for 16 days in 20 months old albino rats. The results were
compared with 3 months, 12 months and 20 months old control rats. The
concentration of trace elements was determined by atomic absorption
spectrophotometer. Results: Significant variation was
observed in the concentration of trace elements. In case of copper there
was decrease in content in early aged (0.240 ± 0.004) control and age
control (0.115 ± 0.004) rats whereas an increase in treated aged rats
(0.124 ± 0.004) was observed. Non significant variation was observed in
zinc content. Young control rats possessed 0.683 ± 0.004 (μg/ml) zinc
contents in cerebellum. Age control animal showed the highest level of Zn
0.954 ± 0.002. Celastrus paniculatus treated rat show revealed the lowest
level of zinc 0.457 ± 0.003 (μg/ml) in cerebellum. Young control rat
had 0.066 ± 0 (μg/ml) manganese content which was significantly
decreased in early age control (0.022 ± 0.0008) followed the significant
increase in age control (0.087 ± 0.002). Treated rats possessed the
decreased content than age control but higher than young and early age
control. Non significant decrease in cobalt content was observed during
ageing as in young control the highest cobalt content was 0.084 ± 0.0007
followed by decrease in early age control 0.83 ± 0 and age control 0.006 ± 0.0007
(μg/ml). Treated rats showed an increase in cobalt content up to 0.032
± 0.0007. Conclusion: Results of the present study
revealed that the determination of trace elements in blood and tissues has
been widely used in the last two decades as a tool to understand their
metabolic role in human and animals.
