Abstract– This study intends to look into how atrazine exposure could affect different metabolic markers in mice. Concerns concerning the herbicide atrazine’s possible negative effects on non-target organisms, such as animals, have been raised. In this study, we performed a thorough investigation of biochemical markers in mice exposed to various atrazine concentrations for a predetermined amount of time. The findings give information on the potential physiological effects of atrazine exposure by highlighting changes in important biochemical indicators. Atrazine was administered to adult male mice for ten days. The animals were slaughtered by cervical dislocation at the conclusion of the tenth day; the liver and kidney. For histological analysis and biochemical evaluations, blood glucose was taken. Measurements were made of the body’s initial weight, final weight, liver weight, kidney weight, and blood glucose.
Key words: Atrazine, biochemical markers, Anthron method, Ellman’s method, Ohkawa method
