ABSTRACT

 

Lepidocephalus thermalis was exposed to sublethal concentration (15 %) sugar factory effluent to evaluate biochemical changes in organs / tissues. The level of Free Amino Acid (FAA) during early 48 hr exposure increased in blood (34.5 mg/g), liver (32.37 mg/g), kidney (28.7 mg/g) and muscle (32.11 mg/g) but their was a gradual decreases at 96 hrs in blood (27.50 mg/g), liver (26.55 mg/g), kidney (18.99 mg/g) and muscle (17.00 mg/g). The protein also showed initial increase but gradual decrease with time exposure at 96 hrs. There was constant decrease in glycogen content in the tissues up to 96 hrs exposure with reference to control levels. The depletion in levels of FAA, protein and glycogen occur significantly when Lepidocephalus thermalis where exposed to sublethal concentration of sugar factory effluent because of glycogensis, gluconeogenesis for energy requirement and proteolysis due to impact for effluent stress in organ / tissue.
