The effect ofin vivo exposure of a sublethal concentration (0.01 mg/l) of endrin on the activities of acid, alkaline and glucose-6-phosphatases in the liver and kidney ofOphiccephalus punctatus was studied. The period of exposure was twenty days. In the liver, alkaline phosphatase and glucose-6-phosphatase activities were decreased but acid phosphatase was stimulated. Kidney showed stimulation in the activity of all the three phosphatases.
