Mercuric chloride (HgCl2) is a widespread environmental toxin that affects mainly liver and kidney. The present study has been carried out to investigate the protective action of a protein (the CI protein) isolated from the herb, Cajanus indicus Spreng against HgCl2 induced renal and hepatic toxicities in mice.
