Abstract:

Azadirachta indica is an important medicinal plant having diverse chemical compounds with  various biological properties. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of leaf extract of neem plant on protein content of muscles and gills in semi fingerling of Catla catla a common fresh water fish. The fingerlings were exposed to sub- lethal concentration of neem extract (g/lit) for 24 and 96 hours as time intervals. The total protein level was changed in muscles and gills of semi fingerling. Semi fingerling of first group were exposed to ½ 24 hrs Lc50 and ½ 96 hrs Lc100 (4.25gm/lit and 3.25gm/lit) for 2 and 7days and second group  were exposed to 1/10th 24hrs Lc50 and 1/10th 96 hrs Lc100 (0.85g/lit and 0.65g/lit) for 2 and 7days.The result reveled that total protein (mg/dl) in muscles and gills decrease from 0.793-0.520,0.776-0.512 and 0.793-0.636,0.776-0.586 for 2days.When it was exposed with concentration 4.25g/lit and 0.85g/lit for ½,1/10th 24hrs Lc50.and 0.793-0.504,0.776-0.495 and 0.793-0.628,0.776-0.578 for 7 days when it was exposed with concentration 4.25g/lit and 0.85g/lit for ½,1/10th 24hrs Lc50. as well as total protein (mg/dl) in muscles and gills decrease from 0.793-0.495,0.776-0.479 and 0.793-0.628,0.776-0.603 for 2 days, when it was exposed with concentration 3.25g/lit and 0.65g/lit ½,1/10th 96hrs Lc100 and 0.793-0.471,0.776-0.462 and 0.793-0.603,0.776-0.576 for 7 days, when it was exposed with concentration 3.25g/lit and 0.65g/lit ½,1/10th 96hrs Lc100,respective different exposure period compare to control.
