Abstract

Hydrostatic pressure elevated to 500 kPa for 14 days was found to affect hepatic 7-ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD), oxidized protein (POx), protein yield and branchial Na+–K+-ATPase. No effect on glutathione-S-transferase (GST), superoxidase dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), lipid peroxidation (LP), acetylcholinesterase (AChE), butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), condition factor (K) and hepato-somatic index (IH) was encountered.
