Abstract: Indian major carps, Labeo rohita, Catla catla and Cirrhinus mrigala were challenged intraperitoneally with a dose of erythromycin (50 mg kg-1 body weight) for 24 hrs, 48 hrs, 72 hrs and 96 hrs and hepatic microsomes were isolated. Cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) specific erythromycin N-demethylation activity (ERND) in the hepatic microsome was assayed. All three species showed positive reactions for CYP3A. In addition, CYP1A catalyzed ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase activity (EROD) and CYP2E catalyzed aniline-p-hydroxylation activity (APH) were also studied. It was concluded that the activity of CYP3A was induced in all the fishes while CYP1A and CYP2E activities were not significantly altered.
