Effect of Parsley Extract on Protein Content and Histology of Submandibular Glands of Naturally Aged Male Mice
S. N. Khandare | N. K. Khandare 
Abstract: The aging is generally characterized by the declining in ability to respond to stress, increasing homeostatic imbalance and increased risks of diseases. Aging promotes free radical formation in the cell. The free radicals formed due to aging or various reasons are scavenged by antioxidants. In present studies antioxidant rich plant, viz- parsley (Petroselinum crispum. mill), was used to assess the free radicals generated during aging. Three groups of mice (Control, Naturally aged, Parsley receiving) were used during the experiments. Study was restricted to only submandibular glands. Histological sections of glands were stained with haematoxylene and eosine. Protein content was estimated in the experiment. Study shows damage in submandibular glands in naturally aged mice as compare to young control. Parsley corrected the histological structure of submandibular glands as well as protein content of submandibular glands in naturally aged animal.
