EFFECT OF COPPER SULPHATE ON PROTEIN CONTENT OF LAMEILIDENS MARGIN AILSSandhya M. Sonawane & V.S. Lomte
The freshwater bivalve Lamellidens margi nal is from the river Godavari at Paithan near Au rangabad were exposed to lethal and sublethal concentration (1.6 ppm and 0.82 ppm) of copper sulphate as acute and chronic treatment. Biochemical study shown the alteration of protein content in exponed tissues. In acute treatment by copper sulphate the protein content of whole body decreased significantly (P <0.01). In digestive gland most significant (P < 0.00 I ) decrease of protein content was found after acute and chronic treatment. The decrease of protein after treatment was maximum in digestive gland followed by foot and mantle.
