Vijaya, S. and Rau, Meera and Manjunath, R and Menon, Satish A and Kurup, Ramakrishna CK and Ramasarma, T (1980) Changes in the Activities of two membrane-bound enzymes during solar eclipse on February 16, 1980. In: Current Science, 49 (16). pp. 620-622.
ON Saturday February 16, 1980 total solar eclipse Occurred for a period of 2-3 min in a belt of 135 km during the eclipse from 14'17 to 17'00 hrs across peninsular India. The city of Bangalore, being just outside this belt, had witnessed 92% eclipse for about 2. 1/2 min at the peak period of 15.44 hr at which time a temperature drop of 2' C and a considerable dimness of the light were experienced. In view of the interest in our laboratory on biochemical adaptation under conditions of environmental stress, we designed an experiment to study the possible changes in enzyme activities during the solar eclipse on February 16, 1980.
