Abstract

Two mulberry silkworm breeds viz., Pure Mysore and NB4D2 were selected for the present study. The breed susceptibility was determined during fifth instar by oral injection method. Two doses of cytoplasmic polyhedral inclusion bodies i.e., 1.562 x 106 and 3.125 x 106 were selected based on the breed susceptibility test and inoculated in to silkworm larvae by oral injection. The control as well as inoculated silkworm larvae were collected daily with a regular interval of 24 h for haemolymph collection. The collected haemolymph was subjected for glucose assay. Among the experimental batches, the diseased larvae exhibited reduction in the blood glucose level and also there was gradual reduction as the disease progressed. Such changes in the infected larvae, depicting the possible defense cellular adjustment of the host in response to viral attack.
