A colorimetric method for the determination of serum level of glutamate-oxaloacetate and pyruvate transaminases. In this study, we also observed a significant decrease in the activities of free radical scavenging enzymes; Cnidosscolus and CAT, which are the first line of defense against oxidative injury. Numerous flavonoid compounds have been isolated from the leaves – most are kaempferol and quercetin glycosides[ ].

Simple method for measuring serum level of glutamate-oxaloacetate and glutamate-pyruvate transaminases in laboratories. Studies have shown that aconitifoilus consumed medicinal plants are good sources of polyphenols, saponins, flavonoids and phenyl propanoids, which are active in vivo antioxidants and may boost the endogenous antioxidant defense system Koch et al. Similarly, slides from rats treated with CA or KV alone shared similar histopathological appearance with the control. At present it is considered nearer to Manihot.
