Abstract

The present investigation was an attempt to analyze and compare the changes in amylase, acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase in Bombyx mori pure races namely pure mysore and NB4D2 in all the four remarkably different developmental stages, the egg, larva, pupa and the moth. The protein content of all the three enzymes was found to increase in both the races of Bombyx mori during developmental stages. But the protein content of amylase and alkaline phosphatase were higher in V instar stage whereas, acid phosphates were more in pupa stage. All these Biochemical parameters were higher in female adult moth than in male adult moth. The specific activity of these enzymes showed a similar trend like that of enzyme activity.
