ASCORBATE EFFECT ON COPPER SULPHATE AND MERCURIC CHLORIDE INDUCED ALTERATIONS OF PROTEIN LEVELS IN FRESHWATER BIVALVE CORBICULA STRIATELLAA.Y. MAHAJAN AND S.P. ZAMBARE
Freshwater bivalves, Corbicula striate/la were exposed to acute and chronic doses of copper sulphate and mercuric chloride with and without ascorbic acid. Protein contents from mantle, foot, gill, gonad and digestive glands were estimated. Depletion in protein contents in different tissues caused due to heavy metal stress was much more as compaired to those exposed with ascorbic acid and heavy metals.
