Comparison of Induced Effect of Pyrethroid (Cypermethrin) with Organophosphate (Malathion) on GOT and GPT in Liver, Kidney and Brain of Calotes versicolor Daudin (Agamidae: Reptilia)
Muhammad Zaheer Khan and Farina Fatima

Abstract:
Experiments were carried out to find the induced effect of pyrethroid (cypermethrin) and organophosphate (malathion) was observed on GOT and GPT of Calotes versicolor Daudin. Two different concentrations 0.1 and 1% were used. In the surviving lizards GOT and GPT activities were estimated, in liver, kidney and brain. These activities were decrease of GOT upto 33 and 37% in liver, 23 and 66% in kidney and 38 and 61% in brain under the effect of cypermethrin. In the case of malathion the decrease of GOT activity was found as 26 and 33% in liver, 30 and 44% in kidney and 28 and 46% in brain. Under the effect of cypermethrin an average decrease in GPT upto 23 and 31% in liver, 26 and 42% in kidney and 2.47 and 11% in brain, while under the treatment of malathion the decrease of GPT activity was found as 21 and 23% in liver, 25 and 27% in kidney and 11 and 20% in brain, respectively.
