Characteristics of aminopeptidase activity of female housefly reproductive accessory glands

International Journal Of Invertebrate Reproduction: 62: 93-98

Characteristics of aminopeptidase activity of female housefly reproductive accessory glands

Proteolytic activity was detected in crude extracts of the reproductive accessory glands of females of Musca domestica L., and the characteristics of the principal aminopeptidase activities (substrate specificity, pH optima, molecular weights and the effects of inorganic salts) were determined. The greatest aminopeptidase activities were found with the beta -naphthalamides of alanine (at pH 7.5 and 9.5), leucine (at pH 8) and methionine (at pH 6.5).
