EFFECT OF SUB LETHAL CONCENTRATIONS OF TEXTILE BLEACHING EFFLUENT IN THE TOTAL PROTEIN CONTENT IN THE FISH, CYPRINUS CARPIOS. Swapna
Proteins can be expected to be involved in the compensatory mechanism of stressed organisms. Toxic effect of treated textile bleaching effluent on the fish Cyprinus carpiowas assessed. Alteration in the protein content in muscle, liver, gill and intestine was determined after exposure to sublethal concentrations of the effluent for a period of 28 days. Data showed that total protein content was decreased in all test tissues compared to control. Results indicated the toxic nature of the effluent.
