Exposure of fresh water crab Barytelphusa querini to a sublethal concentration of NaF (30 ppm) caused significant alterations in the carbohydrate metabolism. In an exposure span of 15 days the crab was observed to have marked depletion in glycogen and total free sugar levels. A significant elevation in "active" and "total" glycogen phosphorylase activity was observed. The activity changes of lactate dehydrogenase reflected changes in tissue lactate levels and succinate dehydrogenase activity… 
Fluoride induced changes in protein metabolism in the tissues of freshwater crab Barytelphusa guerini.
Exposure of the freshwater field crab Barytelphusa guerini to a sublethal concentration of NaF caused significant alterations in protein metabolism, which was reflected in the free amino acid levels of the tissues.
Changes in oxidative metabolism in selected tissues of the crab (Scylla serrata) in response to cadmium toxicity.
The results suggest that Cadmium affects oxidative metabolism and induces hyperammonemia, and crabs switch over their metabolic profiles toward compensatory mechanisms for the survivability in cadmium-polluted habitats.
Effect of Fluoride Exposure on Key Enzymes Activity of Protein - Carbohydrate Metabolism in Gills of Fresh Water Fish Tilapia mossambica , Keenjhar Lake, Thatta, Sindh, Pakistan
It was concluded that fluoride produce toxic effect on physiology of fish gill, which may be associated with increased ionic permeability to gill surface.
Alteration in Hepatic Enzyme Activity of Tilapia mossambica upon Exposure to Fluoride
Fluoride, as the super reactive element fluorine, is found naturally throughout earth's crust. It has been identified as a strong, persistent powerful cumulative toxic agent, commonly distributed in
Biochemical alteration in Fresh Water Carp Cirrhinus mrigala (Hamilton) exposed to the Sodium Fluoride
The investigations on the effects of sodium fluoride to fish Cirrhinus mrigala has been carried out on fingerling stage of having weight. 2.5 to 4.5g. Biochemical parameters total proteins and
Exposure of fingerlings of Labeo rohita (Hamilton), commonly known as Indian major carp, to different concentrations of fluoride (as NaF) had no apparent adverse effect on the external anatomy,
Toxic Effects of Fluoride Ion on Survival, Reproduction and Behaviour of the Aquatic Snail Potamopyrgus antipodarum (Hydrobiidae, Mollusca)
The results show that fluoride is toxic at short- and long-term exposures, causing mortality (at short term) and affecting reproduction and behaviour (at long term), and fluoride pollution may potentially affect natural population of invertebrates.
Metabolic responses of two Helianthus annuus cultivars to different fluoride concentrations during germination and seedling growth stages
Investigation of the effect of sodium fluoride on two sunflower cultivars during germination and seedling growth stages found the earlyflower cv.
Subchronic Toxic Effects of Fluoride Ion on the Survival and Behaviour of the Aquatic Snail Potamopyrgus antipodarum (Hydrobiidae, Mollusca)
Short-term bioassays usually assess lethal effects of pollutants in animals, whereas subchronic bioassays are more suited for assessing effects on animal behaviour. Among them, videotaped bioassays
Ecotoxicological assessment of the impact of fluoride (F−) and turbidity on the freshwater snail Physella acuta in a polluted river receiving an industrial effluent
It is concluded that instream habitat degradation, derived from increased turbidity levels, might be a major cause for significant reductions in the abundance of P. acuta downstream from the industrial effluent.


The uptake and concentration of fluoride by the blue crab,Callinectes sapidus
Fluoride uptake was studied in the blue crab in reference to a potential source of pollution in the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina, with special attention given to fluoride accumulation in crab tissues and to the effect of fluoride on crab growth.
The accumulation of fluoride by marine and intertidal animals
Preliminary toxicity tests were carried out on a number of marine invertebrates and even at unnaturally high ambient fluoride levels, no adverse effects were seen, except possibly in the case of the filter-feeding mollusc Mytilus edulis.
Endocrine control of glycogen synthesis in crabs
The hypothesis that the inhibitor of UDPG-GT acts as a hormone in the control of glycogen synthesis is supported and the possibility that other factors may also be involved in theControl of carbohydrate metabolism is suggested.
Biological effect of fluoride on plants
The action of several fluorine compounds was studied by means of hydroponics. Seedlings of several species were used. In leaves of Prunus armeniaca, a good correlation between the extent of necrosis
Toxicity of fluoride to brown trout fry (Salmo trutta)
Abstract The toxicity of fluoride to brown trout fry ( Salmo trutta ) was tested using groups of 100 animals in tapwater containing 29 ppm calcium with sodium fluoride added. Resultts obtained were
The effects of fluoride on estuarine organisms
It was concluded that fluoride was accumulated mainly from the water and not via the food materials, and all the introduced animals accumulated fluoride, the highest concentration being reached in the mullet compared to 148.1 in the control system.
The toxicity thresholds of various sodium salts determined by the use of Daphnia magna.
vary with their composition, the nature of the receiving water, and the organ isms encountered, studies on the tox icity of industrial wastes should be conducted along many different lines to
Laboratory Studies on Two Organophosphorus Insecticides, DDVP and Phosphamidon, as Selective Toxicants
Abstract The cultivable carp, Labeo rohita, showed greater tolerance of both DDVP and phosphamidon than nearly all of twelve undesirable fish species and all of nine predaceous aquatic insect species
Effect of sodium fluoride on adrenal gland of rabbit. I. Studies on ascorbic acid and delta 5-3beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity
Rabbits were given 50 mg sodium fluoride/kg body weight through the intragastric route every 24 hours for a total period of 200 days. The left adrenal gland was removed and its total weight recorded.
Mechanism of fluoride-induced hyperglycemia in the rat.
Fluoride-induced hyperglycemia in the rat appears to be mediated by epinephrine secreted by the adrenal medulla, and the effect of fluoride on liver glycogen phosphorylase was detected.
