|Abstract||The plant Solanum trilobatum is mainly used for asthma, chronic febrile affections and difficult parturition. The active principle (Sobatum) obtained from the petroleum ether extract of the plant was proved as an anticancer agent by in vitro and in vivo experiments. Here, an effort was made to evaluate the induction of micronucleus by the Sobatum in the bone marrow of swiss mice. The micronucleus assay was conducted after 24 and 72 h of second administration of the Sobatum. The first set of experiments (24 h after second administration) consisted of 4 groups with 3 male Swiss albino mice each. The first group (as control) received only dimethyl sulfoxide, the second, third and fourth groups received different doses of the Sobatum (100, 200, 400 mg/kg body weight), and the fifth group (as positive control) received cyclophosphamide (100 mg/kg body weight) by i.p. injection. In the second set of experiment (72 h after the second administration) consisting of 5 groups, the first, as control, received dimethyl sulfoxide, the second, third and fourth groups received different concentrations of the Sobatum (100, 200, 400 mg/kg body weight), and the fifth group as positive control received cyclophosphamide (100 mg/kg body weight). All the animals of the first and second sets of experiment were killed 24 and 72 h after the second medication (2 consecutive days), and bone marrow smears were prepared, stained with May-Grunwald and Giemsa stain, and evaluated for the evidence of micronucleus, The study concluded that the Sobatum fails to influence the induction of micronuclei in bone marrow erythrocytes of mice 24 and 72 h after the second administration, thereby proving that Sobatum to has no cytogenetic toxic potential.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
