Effect of Copper Sulphate on Succinate Dehydrogenase and Lactate Dehydrogenase in the Selected Tissues of Fresh Water Fish, Catla Catla

Authors(2) :-Dr. S. Sankar Samipillai, U. Uma

The present study is aimed to investigate the enzymological paprameters such as succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the brain, gill,liver and kidney tissues of fresh water fish, Catla catla exposed sublethal concentration of copper sulphate. The present study shows the level of succinate dehydrogenase was decreased and lactate dehydrogenase was increased in brain, gill,liver and kidney tissues of fresh water fish, Catla catla due to exposure of copper sulphate.The present study concludes that the copper sulphate affect the enzymological activities in fresh water fish, Catla catla.
