Author(s): SD Ovhal, Dr. KR Reddy
Abstract: In the present study of RNA Contents of gill, gonad, Digestive gland, and foot tissues in Lamellidens marginalis shows significant decrease in gill from 2.23±0.059 to 1.96±0.109 * (-12.107) for 10th day and on 20th day. There is significant decrease from 1.75±0.113 to 1.31±0.102** (-19.714) and gonad shows significant and decrease from 8.16±0.951 7.16±0.312 (-12.254) an 10th days and and 20th days there is a significant decrease from 7.33±0.654 to 6.00±0.328** (-18.144). Next tissues in digestive gland shows significant decrease in from 5.38±0.145 to 4.61±0.241* for 10th day and on 20th days significant decrease from 4.61±0.451 to 3.33± 0.316*and last one which tissues of foot shows significant and decrease from 8.97±0.974 to 8.20± 1.123 NS on 10th days and on 20th days there is a significant decrease from 8.69±0.874 to 7.72± 1.101 NS on 20th day. This is due to toxicity of 5- Fluorouracil and changes of RNA content on fluctuation or mobilization of tissue in the cellular metabolism.
