  author={Khawaja Khurshid Anwar and S. S. Ali and A. Kashmir},
Present study was designed to evaluate the toxicity of single sublethal doses of various concentrations (25, 50, 100 and 200 ppm) of permethrin insecticide on the liver of 16-day old chick embryo. Permethrin was injected in to the eggs on day '0' of incubation. Liver was analysed for the estimation of a few enzyme activities and some biochemical constituents. Among enzymes, the activities of alkaline phosphatase (AkP), acid phosphatase (AcP), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine… Expand
