Characterization of protein in the metabolically active tissues of muscle, gills and liver of the Asian sea bass, L. calcarifer on exposure to two sub-lethal doses (6.83 and 13.66 ppm) of copper were studied for 28 days of exposure (DoE). The electrophoretic pattern of muscle and gill proteins revealed 10 and 6 slow moving bands (control). The number of protein bands decreased to 7 and 6 in muscle, 5 and 4 in gills after 7 days of exposure to lower and higher concentrations of copper, respectively. After 28 days, the protein bands decreased to 6 and 5, 1 and 1in muscle and gill tissues at different concentrations of copper. In liver tissue protein concentration is very low so could not revealed any bands.Pages: 409-415 | 1107 Views 18 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
