Changes in glycogen, total proteins, total free amino acids, succinate dehydrogenase, aspartate and alanine aminotransferases were estimated in foot, mantle and hepatopancreas of normal and malathion exposed mussels. All the organicconstituents along with succinate dehydrogenase showed a decrease while the activities of aspartate and alanine aminotransferases were enhanced. The probable significance of the observed changes were correlated with the phenomena of metabolic compensation and co-operativity among enzymes studied, to meet the toxic stress.
