 en Aminotransferases Activity in the Hemolymph of Bradybaena similaris check for this species in other resources (Gastropoda, Xanthonychidae) under Starvation
Jairo Pinheiro; Edna Maria Gomes & Generoso Manoel Chagas

Abstract

Aminotransferases (GOT and GPT) activities in the hemolymph of Bradybaena similaris check for this species in other resources under experimental condition of starvation were studied. At the 10th day of starvation, GOT activity was 416.6% higher than that observed in the fed snails, being reduced and ranging values near to that shown by the control group onwards. GPT activity only varied significantly at the day-30 of starvation. The results were discussed.
