Asphyxiation stress altered the SGPT [serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase] and SGOT [serum glutamic oxalacetic transaminase] levels of the active fish C. batrachus. The levels of the 2 enzymes fell immediately after a sudden asphyxiation stress for 15 min. SGOT level rose again when the stress was continued for longer periods, up to 60 min, and a rise of 22.16% in the enzyme level from the initial level occurred. SGPT level rose when the stress was continued up to 30 min, but the level fell again and continued to fall till the end of 60 min of stress. At the end of the experiment the SGPT level showed a loss of 24.54% from the initial level of the control fish.
