Effect of Cypermethrin and Permethrin on Cholinesterase Activity and Protein Contents in Rana tigrina (Amphibia)
The effect of different concentrations (0.1% and 1%) of cypermethrin and permethrin were examined on the kidney and liver of Rana tigrina. After treatment with these pesticides, cholinesterase activity and protein contents were determined, in the kidney and liver. It was observed that protein contents and cholinesterase activities decreased in the treated animals.
