Aim: The main objective
of the present study was to evaluate the effect of ascorbic acid against
oxidative stress-induced by dimethoate in Capoeta capoeta.
fish caught in Kars Creek were randomized in four equal groups and acclimatized
in separate tanks. The fish were kept in tanks for 10 days as follows: Group
I (control) was kept in normal water, Group II, III and IV were kept in
separate tanks containing 2 mgl-1dimethoate and 2 mgl-1
dimethoate plus 100 mgl-1 ascorbic acid and ascorbic acid. The
level of total sialic acid, total antioxidant status and total oxidant status
in fish serum were analyzed.
sialic acid level of Group III was found to be lower than the level of Group
II (P< 0.05), there were no statistically important differences between
these two groups in total antioxidant status and oxidant status. In gills,
intensive cartilage degenerations and mononuclear cell infiltrations in group
II and III were observed. It was found that toxic effects of dimethoate in
group III decreased.
acid in fish exposed to dimethoate reduced the level of total sialic acid and
degenerations in lamellae of gills, it had no significant effect on the
oxidative stress response
