Effects of proteins of Cassia marginata, Cassia renigera and Cassia obstusifolia wild leguminous seeds on blood and liver cholesterol in young albino rats
KN Singh, V Chandra, KC Barthwal
Wild leguminous seed proteins of Cassia marginata, Cassia renigera and Cassia obstusifolia were investigated for their effects on blood and liver cholesterol levels in young albino rats. They were found to have a marked lowering effect on blood and liver cholesterol levels. It is suggested that these effect are probably due to direct or indirect inhibition of cholesterol synthesis in the liver.
