Effect of profenofos pesticide on protein levels in gill and muscle of freshwater fish Labeo rohita (Hamilton, 1882)


Jebashiny N T, Lakshmanan S

The present study indicates a brief account of the toxic effects of pesticide profenofos on fish. Pesticides are extremely hazardous for the health of fish. Profenofos toxicity on amino acid and protein content in gill and muscle of fish Labeo rohita have been studied. The fish exposed to profenofos of low, medium and high concentrations of the period of 15 and 45 days. The outcomes showed decline in the protein content and expansion in the amino acid substance in gill and muscle of fish Labeo rohita. The significant reduction in protein content and elevated levels of amino acids is apparently indicative of the toxic effect of pesticide profenofos on biochemical parameter and organism’s response to the toxic stress.
