Sublethal Toxic Effects of Gusathion-A on the Morphology of the Hepatocytes of Cyprinus carpio

Emma Dorado, Annabelle Herrera

Abstract


Cyprinus carpio fingerlings were exposed to sublethal levels if 0.05 ppm and 0.1 ppm Gusathion-A for 30 days.

Cell disarray, hepatocyte necrosis and vacuolation were observed. Ultrastructural change in the hepatocytes was loss if structural integrity of the plasma membrane, nuclear membrane, endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria and other cell structures. Glycogen deposits were depleted.
