Abstract

Four pure mulberry silkworm breeds viz., Pure Mysore, Nistari, NB D & CSR and two hybrid (Pure Mysore x CSR 4222 and Nistari x NB D ) silkworms were selected for the present study. The total soluble protein present in the fat body was 42 estimated. The Specific activity of amylase as well as succinate dehydrogenase in the fat body was stimated. The qualitative analysis of proteins and enzymes were carried out by SDS-PAGE and Native-PAGE respectively. The commercial characters viz., fecundity, larval weight, larval duration, cocoon weight, shell weight, shell ratio, filament length, denier and renditta were selected. The concentration of protein and enzymes activity levels was subjected for regression analysis against selected commercial characters to know the level and kind of correlation between them. The results of statistical analysis clearly showed that the fat body protein concentration showed moderately positive correlation with larval duration, cocoon weight, shell weight, shell percentage, filament length and denier. Amylase activity level showed very low level of positive correlation with filament length only. Succinate dehydrogenase activity level exhibited moderately positive correlation with renditta only. The zymograms proteins, amylase and succinate dehydrogenase also exhibited variation among the selected silkworm breeds
