Effect of arsenic on enzyme activity of a fresh water cat fish, Mystus vittatus


Author(s): Ashok Kumar Verma and Sadguru Prakash

Abstract: The present investigation has been designed to study the effect of sublethal concentrations (10% and 30%) of heavy metal, arsenic on the activity of alkaline and acid phosphatases enzyme in liver and muscles of Mystus vittatus after exposure to 30 days. A significant decreased has been observed in alkaline and acid phosphatases level in liver and muscles of arsenic exposed fish Mystus vittatus. The result of present study obviously indicates that low concentration of arsenic is toxic to fishes and alters the enzymatic activity in different tissues. With the result the entire metabolic activities of fish becomes disturbed. Thus the arsenic is known to affect the biological potential of aquatic animals.
