    • Abstract


      Liver and muscle total proteins declined inSarotherodon mossambicus subjected to sublethal concentrations of ddt, malathion and mercury. The results indicate their role in maintenance of energy supply irrespective of the nature of the toxicant. The qualitative variations in serum protein pattern also support the quantitative changes in tissues.
