ANTIDIABETIC EFFECT OF METHALONIC LEAF EXTRACT OF PTEROCARPUS ERINACEUS IN STREPTOZOTOCIN INDUCED DIABETIC RATS
Ajayi Victoria Folashade , Uguru M.O., Suleiman Daniel, Ajayi Abraham Dare

Abstract: The plant Pterocarpus erinaceus has been widely utilized Phytotherapeutically for it anti-mycotic, anti-helminthics, anti-malaria, anti-gonadotropic activities. The anti-diabetic effect was investigated using the methanolic leaf extract of the plant on male albino rats by monitoring the Blood Glucose Concentration before and after the treatment. Phytochemical screening of the plant reveals the presence of Saponins, Tannins, Flavonoids, Alkaloids, Steroids, Carbohydrates and Cardiac glycosides. Acute toxicity study of the methanolic leaf extract of the plant was greater than 5000mg/kg when administered via the oral route. The fasting blood glucose concentration of the animals was determined at day 0 then at day 1, 4 and 7 post administration. At day 4 and day 7, there was significant (p < 0.05) reduction in the blood glucose concentration of the group that receive 250mg/kg, 500 mg/kg, 1000mg/kg of the extract. There was no significant change in the weight of the animal across the group. The result indicates that the methanolic leaf extract of Pterocarpus erinaceus Poir has anti-diabetic activity as it reduces the blood glucose concentration from 330mg/dl to 117mg/dl. This study shows possible beneficial effects of Pterocarpus erinaceus in the management of diabetes.

Huda. D. Salman, May Estefan, Nahi. Y. Yaseen

Abstract: This study aims to show the quantity of errors in using punctuation marks in selected scientific written texts were written by non- native postgraduate. The selected pieces of scientific writing in biology field, are contain (5) theses and (5) dissertations. These selected scientific will examine, identify the errors in using punctuations marks (full stop, semi-colon, and comma), and analysis them according to Coder's theory of errors analysis .The results reveal that, there are errors in using punctuation marks made by non-native postgraduates, with variation percentage in chapters of theses and dissertation. No significant difference in punctuation marks errors in the theses can be observed among the chapters of each thesis in spite of errors committed. But there is significant difference among the five theses. This means that M.Sc. students have individual differences and they have poor ability to write correct punctuation marks in their theses. It is not only M.Sc. students who have a defect in using correct punctuation marks, but also Ph.D. students committed errors in punctuation marks .
