Abstract

CAFFEINE PROTECT THE VARIATIONS IN PROTEIN CONTENT IN VARIOUS TISSUES OF FRESH WATER BIVALVE, LEMELLIDENS CORRIANUS AFTER INTOXICATION OF CADMIUM CHLORIDE

P. R. Mahajan*

.

Abstract

The aim of present study was to find the protective role of caffeine (1,3,7-trimethyxanthine ) on mercury induced alterations in the protein contents of an experimental freshwater bivalve, Lamellidens corrianus The effect on bivalve was studied under five groups. A group bivalves were kept as control, B of bivalves were exposed to chronic dose (LC50/10) of cadmium chloride (0.185ppm) and C group of bivalves were exposed to chronic dose (LC50/10) of cadmium chloride with caffeine (5 mg/L.) up to 18 days. After18 day’s bivalves from group B were divided into two groups D and E.The D group of bivalves pre exposed to chronic dose (LC50/10) of cadmium chloride were allowed to cure in normal water and E group of bivalves pre exposed to cadmium chloride were exposed to caffeine (5 mg/L) for recovery up to18 days. Protein contents in various tissues from all groups were estimated after 9 and 18 days.The protein content was decreased due to cadmium intoxication while protein is more in presence of caffeine. The rapid recovery by caffeine shows that protective role towards cadmium intoxication.

Keywords: Caffeine, Protein Content, Cadmium Intoxication and Lamellidens Corrianus.
