The toxic effects of copper nitrate and cadmium nitrate on the activity of two enzymes i.e. Alkaline phosphatase and Acid phosphatase in the digestive tract of albino rat- Rattus-rattus albino have been analysed histochemically. Inhibited enzyme reactions suggested damage to plasma membrane, lysosomes and endoplasmic reticulum. These observations from toxicological point of view have a great significance.
