Activity of arginase, GDH, AAT and ALAT have been studied in the liver and kidney of three amphibian species that differ in their habitat preferences ranging from aquatic, semiterrestrial to terrestrial modes of living. The enzyme levels in the liver tissue cannot be correlated to the habitat preferences of the species, but the kidney enzymes show some correlations, with aquatic species showing higher rates of enzyme activity. The kidney-to-liver ratio of enzyme activity is also high in aquatic species.
