Transmission electron microscopy study of the gills of Heteropneustes fossilis, exposed to 4 mg/liter of malathion (1/3 of LC50) for 24, 48, 72, and 96 h showed significant changes in its ultrastructures. Exposure to the pesticide after 24 h caused a slightly disarrayed condition in the double layered epithelial structure. Lymphatic spaces became more(More)
The effect of copper on survival, growth and feed intake of Indian major carp, Cirrhinus mrigala (Hamilton) fry (0.92 +/- 0.28 g) was studied for 60 days. Survival rates of the fish exposed to control (0.02), 0.10, 0.15 and 0.23 mg L(-1) copper were 100%, 83 +/- 3%, 58 +/- 6%, and 50 +/- 4%, respectively. Average daily growth was significantly (p < 0.05)(More)
Scanning electron microscopic studies of the gills of catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis, exposed to sublethal malathion (4 mg/L and 6 mg/L) revealed that 24-hour exposure to 4 mg/L had a mild effect. However, severe damage was found after 48- and 72-hour exposures. After a 24-hour exposure to a 6 mg/L concentration, more severe damage ensued. The microridged(More)
The use of pesticides to control pests and to increase food production is a normal process in this modern age. The objective of this study was to determine changes in different serum protein fractions caused by the action of malathion, a commonly used pesticide. We used Indian catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis. The fish were exposed to a sublethal dose of 4(More)
Mahua flower extract may provide protective effects against hepatotoxicity. The effect of Mahua flower extract (ME) was investigated on Hep G2 cell line and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced liver damages in Swiss albino mice. To investigate its cytotoxic effect in liver cancer, Hep G2 cells were treated with different doses of ME, and cell proliferation(More)
