Brunner’s harps use a single-action pedal design, the fourchette mechanism, decorations in the empire style, and in a few cases, the application of a new design

91Book Review Book Review Jha, Krishna and Jha, Dhirendra K. 2012. Ayodhya: The Dark Night. The Secret History of Rama’s Appearance in Babri Masjid. New Delhi: Harper Collins. The demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6, 2002 by the Hindu fundamentalists is undoubtedly a soaring wound of contemporary India, a culmination of the rise of Hindu fundamentalism in 1980s, and an embodiment of destructive communalism that has been one of the foremost political problems in India since late 19th century. It was (and still is) widely believed that the

Mechanistic Study on Aniline-Induced Erythrocyte Toxicity

Strategies for the use of bio-indicators in the prediction of environmental damage should include mechanistic research. This study involves the relationship between the chemical structure and hemotoxic markers of aniline and its halogenated analogs. Aniline-induced methemoglobinemia, loss of circulating blood cells, blood stability, glutathione depletion and membrane cytoskeletal changes were assessed following exposure to phenylhydroxylamine (PHA), para-fluoro-, para-bromo-, and para-iodo in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Methemoglobin was determined spectrophotometrically at 635 nm. Erythrocyte depletion was investigated by loss of radioactivity in chromium-labeled red blood cells in vivo. Membrane proteins were analyzed by SDS-PAGE using red blood ghost cells treated with various aniline analogs. Results showed dose- and time-dependent changes in the induction of methemoglobin of up to 78 % with para-bromo PHA and 75 % with para-iodo PHA compared to 3 % to 5 % in control. Treated animals lost up to three times more blood from circulation compared to control within 14 days after treatment. Erythrocytes were more stable in buffer solution than in para-iodo-treated cells. Depletion of reduced glutathione in PHA and para-iodo-PHA treated red cells was also observed. Analysis of red cell skeletal membrane treated with para-iodo-PHA showed that protein band 2.1 became broader and band 2.2 diminished completely in some treatments. Dose- and time-dependent changes suggested the use of hemotoxic endpoints as potential biomarkers for assessing chemical and drug safety.
