The effects of endosulfan upon brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity were measured in juvenile bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus). Based on exposure durations of 0, 24, 48, 72, and 96h and 1 week at 1.0 microg/L (just below the LC50 of 1.2 microg/L for this species), step-wise decreases in AChE activity were noted, corresponding to 0%, 3.57%, 12.65%, 14.23%, 16.31%, and 23.11% inhibition, respectively. Total brain protein concentrations were measured to test the accuracy of the AChE… CONTINUE READING
