Abstract
The seasonal variation of protein, amino acid, alkaloid and lipid content have been investigated from leaves, stem, root and seeds of Senna tora. Comparative account of protein contents of Senna tora showed higher level in seeds (26.648 mg/g dry wt.) than leaves (range 5.763 to 6.544 mg/g dry wt.), stem (range 3.785 to 4.341 mg/g dry wt.) and root (range 1.871 to 2.349 mg/g dry wt.). Comparative account of amino acid contents of Senna tora showed higher level in seeds (10.436 mg/g dry wt.) than leaves (range 0.085 to 1.143 mg/g dry wt.), stem (range 0.872 to 0.943 mg/g dry wt.) and root (range 0.287 to 0.324 mg/g dry wt.). Comparative account of alkaloid contents of Senna tora showed higher level in seeds (5.938 mg/g dry wt.) than leaves (range 3.109 to 3.749 mg/g dry wt.), stem (range 2.083 to 2.378 mg/g dry wt.) and root (range 0.854 to 1.015 mg/g dry wt.). Comparative account of lipid contents of Senna tora showed higher level in seeds (14.730 mg/g dry wt.) than leaves (range 8.638 to 9.630 mg/g dry wt.), stem (range 3.682 to 4.319 mg/g dry wt.) and root (range 1.232 to 1.914 mg/g dry wt.).
