Chronic toxic effects of ekalux on some biochemical parameters in Cyprinus carpio (Lin.)


Author(s): J Nancy Shophiya and JMV Kalaiarasi

Abstract: The effect of exposure to sublethal concentrations of the organophosphate pesticide, ekalux (1.27, 0.28mg/l) on biochemical parameters of muscle, gills and enzyme activities in liver and kidney of the Common carp, Cyprinus carpio was studied after 7, 14 and 21 days. The muscle, gill protein and acid phosphatase were elevated. Similarly, alkaline phosphatase was depleted. Lactate dehydrogenase levels in liver were elevated the maximum percentage of reduction was recorded at 21 days post-exposure in 1.27 mg/l.
