Resolution of proteases in the keratinolytic larvae of the webbing clothes moth



Resolution of proteases in the keratinolytic larvae of the webbing clothes moth



Australian Journal of Biological Sciences 28(1): 1-23



In laboratory investigations on proteases in larvae of Tineola bisselliella (Humm.), a complex mixture of peptidases and proteinases was found in extracts of whole larvae and shown to be associated with the larval digestive tract. The proteinases included metal-chelator-sensitive proteinases (metalloproteinases) and serine proteinases but no SH-proteinases or acid proteinases. The serine proteinases included both trypsin-like and chymotrypsin-like activities.
