The effect of magnetically treated water on the total protein and some enzymes in the muscle of Cyprinus carpio L.

Abstract

AbstractThe fish Cyprinus carpio L.(24-25gm) were exposed to the water magnetically treated with different magnetic intensities (750, 1500, 3000) Gauss, for a period of 8 days. The muscle was used to follow the changes in the total proteins and electrophoresis proteins, as well as the activity of some enzymes (Alkaline phosphates, Aspartate transaminase, Alanin transaminase and Acid phosphates) using spectrophotometric methods. The electrophoresis method was also used to follow up the effects on the Esterase bands which stained by α-naphthyl acetate .The results showed an increase in the activities of the enzymes in the muscle when exposing the fish to the magnetized water. The number and intensity of electrophoresis esterase bands didn’t change.
