  A glasshouse study was conducted to investigate the growth response of sweet corn (Zea mays) to mycorrhizal fungi inoculation over different plant ages (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks) and to determine the interaction between the host and mycorrhizal fungus on mycorrhizal development, using soil substrate as inoculum for Glomus mosseae. Inoculation had no significant effect on growth parameters in plants harvested at early ages in terms of plant height, total root length, root and shoot dry weights. The significant effect of mycorrhizal inoculation was observed on plants of eight weeks old. Percentage of mycorrhizal colonization and number of spores increased significantly at plants of 2 weeks old (24.1 and 39.2%), respectively while; the highest AMF spores level was recorded at plants of four weeks old. Inoculation with G. mosseae enhanced growth of sweet corn by increasing concentration of N, P and K (24.2, 8.4 and 18.2%), respectively. We concluded that the mycorrhizal inoculation need a time (not less than one month in sweet corn) until showed the beneficial effects on host plant to be desired.

  Cyclophosphamide (CP) is one among the important therapeutic chemotherapy drug used worldwide. Damage to normal tissues due to toxic metabolites limits the usage of CP efficiently for treating various cancers. In the present study, hepatoprotective effect of Momordica charantia Linn. (Cucurbitaceae) against CP induced hepatotoxicity in rats was evaluated. Hepatocellular damage in rats was induced by injecting CP i.p. (total of 200 mg kg-1, b.wt.) for 2 days. Momordica charantia fruit aqueous extract (MCE) (300 mg kg-1 b.wt.) was administered orally for 12 days for treatment. Protective effect of MCE was evaluated by assessing the liver marker enzymes such as AST, ALT, ALP, LDH and γ-GT in serum, AST and ALT in liver tissues and biochemical parameters such as total protein, urea, creatinine, uric acid, total and direct bilirubin. Liver marker enzymes and clinical chemistry parameters were significantly altered in CP intoxication. These alterations were significantly normalized in animals administered with MCE. Protective effect of MCE could be due to radical-scavenging and antioxidant properties of the MCE. MCE could had been demonstrated these properties due to the presence of phytochemical components that include polyphenols, alkaloids, terpenoids, glycosides and tannins. Present findings supported that the treatment with MCE could be helpful against hepatocellular damage, owing to its hepatoprotective property.
