Abstract

This article demonstrates the hepatoprotective action of the protein extract of the aquatic plant Potamogeton perfoliatus L. based on the histopathologic changes in the liver of mice with CCl4-induced liver damage. Using the chromatography, 4 fractions of the protein extract were obtained. It has been suggested that a fourth fraction corresponding to low molecular weight protein should most likely exhibit hepatoprotective properties. SDS-PAGE of P. perfoliatus L. revealed a protein with molecular weight of 21 kDa corresponding to the fourth peak of a chromatogram.
