Species- and tissue-specific defenses against the possibility of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation were compared in adult fish, Oreochromis niloticus and Cyprinus carpio, exposed to 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), azinphosmethyl and their combination for 96 h. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and catalase activities were monitored in kidney, brain and gill. In all exposure groups there was a marked increase in SOD activity in gill tissues in both fish… CONTINUE READING
