This study reveals significant alterations in the activity of Glutamic pyruvic transaminase (GPT) enzyme in the blood of a fresh water teleost Labeo rohita when exposed to two azodyes Metanil yellow (4 – aniline azo benzene – m -sulfonic acid ) and Bismark brown ( 2, 4 – diamino 3′ amino azo benzene ). The activity of the enzyme GPT was found to increase significantly ( P < 0.01 ) at both acute exposure ( 48 hrs. & 96hrs. ) and chronic exposure ( 15 days & 30 days ) in the blood of Labeo rohita.
