 en Effect of Cycloart-24-EN-3β-OL From Euphorbia Royleana Latex Onneuro-enzyme AChE and Oxidative Metabolism of Freshwater Fish, Channa Punctatus check for this species in other resources
Tiwari, Sudhanshu; Pandeya, R.P. & Singh, Ajay

Abstract

Cycloart-24-en-3β-ol isolated from Euphorbia royleana latex possesses potent piscicidal activity against freshwater predatory fish Channa Punctatus check for this species in other resources . Their short as well as long-term exposure causes significant (P<0.05) time and dose-dependent reversible alteration in the oxidative metabolism of the fish Channa punctatus Cycloart-24-en-3β-ol also shifts fish respiratory pathway, inhibits energy production and AChE activity reversibly may be advantageous for their use as environmentally safe piscicide for controlling the predatory fish C. punctatus population from carp culture ponds.
