Author(s): R Soni, S Gaherwal, G Shiv
Abstract: The objective of this study was to observe the effect of Synthetic Pyrethroid (Cypermethrin) on the biochemistry of kidney and liver of Clarias batrachus. The biochemical parameters studies were RNA, Total protein, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, SGPT, SGOT and blood glucose. In kidney the RNA and protein content decreased up to 65.37, 72.22 percent and ACP, ALP increased upto 48.76 and 33.17 percent respectively. In liver the RNA and protein content decreased up to 92.55, 86.53 percent and ACP, ALP increased upto 25.82 and 11.60 percent respectively. The SGPT, SGOT and BLOOD GLUCOSE also increased up to 55.28, 12.70 and 46.33 percent. Thus on the basis of obtain result in the present investigation it can be concluded that 96 hrs. exposure of 80 ppm of Cypermethrin aqueous solution has toxic effect and alter the biochemistry of kidney and liver. Therefore, it is recommended to the user of this pesticide that should be careful about the dose they are using.
