|Title:||In vitro effect of mercuric chloride on ATPase activity in kidney of the fancy carp Cyprinus carpio||Authors:||Lan, W.G.
|Issue Date:||Feb-1993||Citation:||Lan, W.G.,Wong, M.K.,Sin, Y.M. (1993-02). In vitro effect of mercuric chloride on ATPase activity in kidney of the fancy carp Cyprinus carpio. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. Part C, Comparative 104 (2) : 307-310. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||1. The Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase activity of fancy carp (Cyprinus carpio) kidney homogenate without the presence of EDTA was significantly inhibited by mercuric chloride in a concentration-dependent manner. 2. The Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase activity of fancy carp (Cyprinus carpio) kidney homogenate in the presence of EDTA showed no significant change with the increasing concentration of mercuric chloride. 3. The sensitivity of Na+/K+-ATPase to mercuric chloride was greater than that of the Mg2+-ATPase. 4. In conclusion, the use of EDTA in the determination of the effect of heavy metal on the ATPase activity as a toxicological index should be avoided. Using Na+/K +-ATPase activity as a toxicological index in the studies of heavy metal effect is better than using Mg2+-ATPase activity. © 1993.||Source Title:||Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology.
