Trehalose and glucose levels in hemolymph of diet-reared, tobacco leaf-reared and parasitized tobacco hornworm larvae



Trehalose and glucose levels in hemolymph of diet-reared, tobacco leaf-reared and parasitized tobacco hornworm larvae



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, A 50(1): 165-167



In further investigations on the chemical content of larvae of Manduca sexta (Joh.) reared in the laboratory under different conditions, the larvae were reared on either tobacco leaves or a synthetic diet. The levels of glucose and trehalose were found to be significantly lower in the haemolymph of larvae reared on leaves. The levels of trehalose were higher in the first part of each instar and were generally higher in the fourth instar than in the fifth.
