Toxic effects of two organophosphorus pesticides on fructose-1,6-diphosphate aldolase activity of liver, brain and gills of the freshwater fish Clarias batrachus



Toxic effects of two organophosphorus pesticides on fructose-1,6-diphosphate aldolase activity of liver, brain and gills of the freshwater fish Clarias batrachus



Environmental Pollution Series A, Ecological and Biological 31: 7



The toxic effects of different concentrations of two organophosphorus pesticides, malathion (4·806·20 ppm) and dimecron (2·506·00 ppm), produced elevated activity of the aldolase enzyme of liver, brain and gill tissues in the freshwater fish Clarias batrachus, exposed for periods of 24 to 96 h. The toxic conditions produced by the pesticide ultimately caused t the death of the fish owing to the failure of the respiratory centre of the brain. The breakdown of proteins and the diabetic condition caused by the organophosphorus pesticide toxicity appeared to be the possible cause of increased aldolase activity.
