SEX RELATED VARIATIONS IN SOME HEMATOLOGICAL VALUES OF A FRESHWATER CATFISH HETEROPNEUSTES FOSSILIS (BLOCH.)

Induja Mishra*, B. D. Joshi and Namita Joshi Department of Zoology and  Environmental Sciences, Gurukula Kangri University, Haridwar, India*Email-89induja@gmail.comReceived: 01-12-2018 Accepted: 10-12-2018 AbstractThis study reveals sex related variations in the Indian catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis. The haematological parameters include total erythrocyte count (TEC), total leucocyte count (TLC), haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), red cell indices (MCH, MCHC, MCV), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), glucose, differential leukocyte count (DLC) and Differential erythrocyte count (DEC). It was observed that the values of the total erythrocyte count (TEC), Read More …

STUDIES ON THE EFFECT OF L-THYROXINE AND THIOURACIL ADMINISTRATION ON SOME HAEMATOLOGICAL INDICES IN HETEROPNEUSTES

STUDIES ON THE EFFECT OF L-THYROXINE AND THIOURACIL ADMINISTRATION ON SOME HAEMATOLOGICAL INDICES IN HETEROPNEUSTES FOSSILIS (BLOCH) Minakshi Kumari and Vijay Kumar P.G. Department of Zoology, Z. A. Islamia College, Siwan (Bihar) Abstract: Studies on the effect of L-thyroxine T4 and thiouracil (Tu) administration on some haematological parameters were made in an air breathing siluroid fish, Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch). Treatment of both T4 and Tu failed to bring any significant change in the RBC counts and packed cell volume (PCV) Read More …
