Abstract

This study was carried out to investigate the effect of degraded coir pith based cyanobacterial culture filtrate on Rattus norvegicus check for this species in other resources . The culture filtrate containing phenolic compound was administered at a rate of 42 mg/Kg for 15 days and its effect on serum glucose, protein, creatinine, urea, uric acid, alkaline phosphate (ALP), serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) and sperm analysis was studied. The results showed a significant reduction in the levels of serum glucose and liver marker enzymes while serum protein and renal function test showed normal level in both experimental and control rats. Also, a significant reduction in semen count was reported. The results suggested that the phenolic compound of the culture filtrate appears to be non toxic in the tested animals @ JASEM
