Abstract

The effects of infection by nuclear polyhedrosis on the haemolymph proteins. amylase, superoxide dismutase and p-esterase were studied in the silkworm, Bombyx mori L. In the diseased larvae, the quantity of total proteins was gradually decreased as the disease progressed. The electrophoretic analysis also revealed the variation in the number as well as intensity of the protein bands. Also, isozymes of amylase, superoxide dismutase and p-esterase exhibited variation in the RF. and int-ensity, in addition to the appearance of a new fraction of superoxide dismutase. Such changes in the infected larvae, depicting the possible defense cellular adjustment of the host in response to viral attack.
