  In vitro microrhizome was successfully produced in Curcuma zedoaria-a valuable but critically threatened medicinal plant. Ten to twelve weeks old in vitro multiplied shoots were cultured in MS medium supplemented with different level of BAP and NAA. Effect of different carbon sources has also been evaluated. Microrhizome formation started within 7-9 weeks of culture. The best result was obtained in 4.0 mg L-1 BAP along with 6% sucrose in terms of frequency and number of rhizome. Around 4 microrhizomes with an average weight of 2.5 g were harvested after 11-12 weeks. Microrhizomes were readily germinated in the growth regulator free MS medium. With the best of our knowledge this is the first report on in vitro microrhizome production in Curcuma zedoaria.

  A feeding trial was conducted in adult albino rats to study the influence on lipid fractions of serum and various body tissues by feeding diets containing sarsoon oil, canola oil and hydrogenated fat.
The results revealed that serum cholesterol decreased in sarsoon (-14.3%) and canola oil (-9.9%) while increased in hydrogenated fat (26.1%) fed rats. Similarly serum triglycerides decreased in sarsoon (-22.6%) and canola oil (-21.3%) while increased in hydrogenated fat fed rats (24.3%). Serum HDL increased in sarsoon oil (19.30%), canola oil (35.00%) and hydrogenated fat (81.20%) fed rats while serum LDL decreased in sarsoon (-20.00%) and canola oil (-16.00%) and increased in hydrogenated fat (15.70%) fed arts. Liver cholesterol showed higher (p<0.05) values in sarsoon oil (426.33+25.03 mg/100 g) fed rats. Rapeseed oils showed lower (p<0.01) carcass triglycerides than hydrogenated fat fed rats. Body weight of rats decreased in sarsoon while increased in canola and hydrogenated fat fed rats.
