Effect of sublethal concentration of monocrotophos on acid and alkaline phosphatase activities in the tissue of fresh water fish tilapia mossambica


, : Effect of sublethal concentration of monocrotophos on acid and alkaline phosphatase activities in the tissue of fresh water fish tilapia mossambica. Journal of Animal Morphology & Physiology 28(1-2): 221-228

Effect of exposure to monocrotophos, an insecticide, on acid and alkaline phosphatase activities in liver and kidneys of T. mosambica was studied. Increased activity of acid phosphatase was correlated with necrosis of hepatic and renal tissues. Increased alkaline phosphatase activity was correlated with the possible increase in glucocorticoids due to insecticide treatment, which might work as an environmental stress. Recoveries and secondary increases in enzyme activities were also observed. The former was probably due to monocrotophos through enhanced hepatic hydroxylases. The latter change could have been a consequence of secondary hepatic necrosis.
